Synopsis


Three geese in a flock

one flew east

one flew west

one flew over the cuckoo's nest.


Based on Ken Kesey's 1962 novel, this powerful and affecting play by Dale Wasserman concerns Randall Patrick McMurphy who agrees to be committed to an asylum for mental assessment, rather than spend another spell in jail.


His rebellious instincts throw him into constant conflict with the hospital authorities, and as he attempts to help the other patients take control of their lives, he comes to a devastating discovery of where true power lies.


Also adapted into a hugely significant film in 1975 (with Jack Nicholson as a hugely charismatic McMurphy), Chickenshed's fresh new interpretation of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest will be a physical and thrilling version of this moving and touching story.
