This grim satire is set among the patients and workers in a mental institution. It tells the story of an energetic con man who seeks institutionalization as a means of escaping the rigors of a prison work farm. Bad Boy, Randle P McMurphy – lover of life, liquor and girls – is sent to the state mental institution for psychiatric evaluation. Confronted with a repressive regime, he challenges the domineering and terrifying Nurse Ratched and manages to bring defiance, laughter and liberation to his fellow inmates, irrevocably altering the destiny of those in the ward. Based on Ken Kasey’s acclaimed best seller, this play is about oppression and its effect on society, through the metaphor of a mental ward in the early 1960s and its unlikely inhabitants.
A stirring indictment of how we determine who's sane and who's crazy.
