ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, Theater Works, March 27 - April 19, 2015

The 50th anniversary of the Broadway production!

A notorious play that tells of a pleasant rogue who chooses to serve a short sentence in a menial institution rather than go to prison.  This, he learns, is a big misstate.  He clashes with the fierce head nurse and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do:  he leads his fellow patients out of their introversion, and back towards “reality”.  This is an offense not to be endured.
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is a play that helped change how a nation treated mental illness.
*This season marks the 50th anniversary of the Broadway production of Cuckoo’s Nest. It is by the great playwright, Dale Wasseman, whose life was the plot of the renowned Burning in the Night, A Hobo’s Song (a 2013 Theater Works hit).

Cast, photos and review links will be added when available.
