One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

7 February 2022


12 February 2022

By Dale Wasserman

From the Novel by Ken Kesey

Directed by Joseph Meighan

Please Note – Reduced capacity and socially distanced seating for our Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening performances of this production.

Boisterous, ribald and ultimately shattering, One Flew Over the Cuckoo‘s Nest is the unforgettable story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants. When a brash new inmate arrives, the rigid program of the ward, headed by the tyrannical Nurse Ratched, is thrown up for grabs.

In a world where sanity means conformity and following the rules is the only way to survive, One Flew Over the Cuckoo‘s Nest is a powerful exploration of both the beauty and the danger of being an original.

Volatile and dark, humorous, thought-provoking and with strong language, this play (based on the classic 1962 novel by Ken Kesey and the 1972 film starring Jack Nicholson, which won five major Academy awards) is a true cult classic and will be an unforgettable evening at Altrincham Garrick Playhouse, performed by The Garrick Ensemble.

WARNING – this production contains strong language and adult themes.

The Garrick Ensemble is a company of 18 – 30 year old aspiring actors from Greater Manchester and Cheshire who perform one production each year as part of the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse Main House Season. The production will be directed by Artistic Director Joseph Meighan.

The Garrick Ensemble aims to make theatre that is fresh, innovative and exciting.
