One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

  • Playhouse on Park 244 Park Road West Hartford, CT, 06119 United States (map)

by Dale Wasserman

Boisterous, ribald and ultimately shattering, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST is the unforgettable story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants. When a brash new inmate arrives, the rigid program of the ward, which is headed by the tyrannical Nurse Ratched, is thrown up for grabs. In a world where sanity means conformity and following the rules is the only way to survive, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST is a powerful exploration of both the beauty and the danger of being an original. This Tony-award winning adaption by Dale Wasserman pays homage to the original storytelling of the Classic novel by Ken Kesey, while adding a chilling, poignant edge that captivates and enthralls audiences.
