‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ is a funny, yet disturbing roller coaster struggle for status, between the jaunty, testosterone-heavy Mc Murphy and the orderly and manipulative Nurse Ratched. This power play reveals a world of emotional button- pushing, chaos and rebellion. Set in a mental institution, it delves into each patients’ world which will both shock and delight in the most unexpected ways. You would be ‘mad’ not to see it!
A charming rogue contrives to spend a short sentence in an airy mental institution. A mistake. He revolutionises the institution, but clashes with head-nurse Ratched, who forces him to submit to outrageous treatments. “Cuckoo is captivating” – The New York Post
