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 Nestis 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.
