One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Randle Patrick McMurphy is the charming rogue who chooses a short sentence in a mental hospital over prison time in this adaptation of Ken Kesey’s 1960 classic anti-establishment novel. McMurphy challenges the dictatorship of the icy Nurse Ratched with his life-affirming spirit. Powerful and tragic Cuckoo’s Nest will remind us that no matter the cost, one must still struggle against oppression, conformity, and totalitarianism
