One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Event image

Dale Wasserman’s stage adaptation of Ken Kesey’s legendary novel premiered on Broadway in 1963, with Kirk Douglas in the lead role that would make Jack Nicholson a superstar - Randle Patrick McMurphy.

He is a sharp, funny rebel who pretends to be insane so he can finish his prison sentence in the relative comfort of a mental ward. When McMurphy meets his fellow inmates, he discovers that they are a lot more sane than the reactive, restrictive world of the authorities, which is embodied by the cruel and controlling Nurse Ratched.

Both hilarious and deeply moving, this tale of the human spirit and its fight against conformity is a modern classic.
