Set in 1959, the story takes place in a psychiatric institution in the Pacific Northwest.  The patients, orderlies and even doctors are under the self-appointed supervision of Nurse Ratched.  Through “therapeutic” humiliation, Nurse Ratched manipulates her fiefdom into disciplined obedience.  Her tranquility is threatened upon the arrival of Randall Patrick McMurphy.  Trying to avoid hard labor on a work farm, McMurphy opts for the loony bin to serve his remaining five-month sentence.  Although McMurphy is non-compliant with authority issues, he’s not crazy.  It’s Ratched versus McMurphy for control of the psychos.  Ken Kesey’s book and Dale Wasserman’s play explore the artificially created insanity of corrupt authority, conformity and control systems versus the indomitable human spirit.  Please note that there is some strong language, mild onstage violence, and bloody violence offstage.  This production is not recommended for children.
