Perseverance Theatre’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
The madness is in the system
Feb. 28-March 9, 2020
Sydney Laurence Theatre
Looking for an angle, charismatic convicted conman Randle P. McMurphy gets himself transferred to Nurse Ratched’s mental ward to serve his time. He stages a rebellion, witnessed by Chief Bromden and enthusiastically joined by his fellow patients. Ratched’s ultimate victory — it can end no other way — comes at great cost to herself, to McMurphy and his comrades, and to the whole system confining them all. A counter-cultural icon, Cuckoo’s Nest remains shocking today.
Adapted by Dale Wasserman from Ken Kesey’s novel
