ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
by Dale Wasserman from the novel by Ken Kesey

amateur production by arrangement with Samuel French Limited

Set in 1963 in Oregon, USA it looks at the themes of natural versus institutional care and the battle of nonconformity against autocratic authority.

This play will cover a roller coaster of emotions and does deal with themes of an adult nature and contains strong language.

With a few months left in his sentence, thirty-eight year old convict Randall Patrick McMurphy - serving time for several assaults and statutory rape has just been transferred from a labour camp associated with Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton to a psychiatric hospital. McMurphy has been able to use acting "crazy" - having a belligerent and smart-alecky attitude and anti-authoritarian behaviour - to his benefit in not having to do any work.

The play “One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” by Dale Wassermann is based on the novel by Ken Kesey.
