One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (presented by Vagabond Players)

Vagabond Players is excited to conclude its 107th season with ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST written by Dale Wasserman, based on the novel by Ken Kesey, and directed by Audra M. Mullen.

This award-winning story of stage and screen offers a look into the world of absurdities and horrors facing a group of psychiatric patients in the early 1960s, and how that world is turned upside down by petty criminal Randle P. McMurphy who has always lived by his own rules. A charming rebel, McMurphy feigns insanity to serve his short sentence in the state mental hospital rather than in prison. Little does he know that he will be waging an epic war of wills against the formidable Nurse Ratched, who rules her domain with an iron will. This great American classic powerfully portrays a preeminently sane man being pushed to the outer limits of his sanity by the arbitrary rules and regulations of an institution that sets out to crush him.

“One of the finest, most meaningful and most moving plays of recent times.” – WPIX-TV

“The play is an emotional button-pusher, wringing tears and cheers with precision.” – Variety

“Funny, touching and exciting.” – New York Daily News
