A Comedy/Drama adapted by Dale Wasserman from the novel by Ken Kesey
“Funny, touching and exciting – the stuff of great theatre!” – N.Y. Daily News
McMurphy is a charming, devil-may-care rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than work in a prison. He takes over the yard, and he accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years – a presumed deaf and dumb man talks and others move out of introversion. He stages a revolt and makes demands on behalf of the patients. This, he suddenly learns, is a mistake. His charm does not work on the head nurse, however, but only aggravates her antagonism towards him.
