"One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" by Dale Wasserman

Friday, April 10, 2015 - 8:00pm
Variations Theatre Group will present Dale Wasserman's ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST, opening on April 10, 2015 at The Chain Theatre. A mordant, wickedly subversive parable, set in a mental ward, the play chronicles the head-on collision between its hell-raising, life-affirming hero Randle Patrick McMurphy and the totalitarian rule of Nurse Ratched. McMurphy swaggers into the mental ward like a blast of fresh air and turns the place upside down. But McMurphy's revolution against Nurse Ratched and everything she stands for quickly turns from sport to a fierce power struggle with shattering results. ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST is based on the award winning novel by Ken Kesey of the same name, which als inspired the legendary film which garnered 5 Academy Awards.
