One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is the story of McMurphy, a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. While there, he clashes with Head Nurse Ratched, who has no time for his nonsense. McMurphy quickly takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for years: He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and women. After a tragic event occurs, Ratched and McMurphy go head-to-head – and only one of them will win this battle.

Western Reserve Playhouse is proud to partner with Portage Path Behavioral Health to bring you this show.
