Summary

Randle Patrick McMurphy arrives at an Oregon mental asylum and is met by an array of characters that have become institutionalised by the system in which they have found themselves. It doesn’t take long for the charismatic and mutinous crook to sway the others into breaking the rules and challenge the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched. For a time he overturns the senseless and dehumanising routines of the ward. Chaos ensues with grim consequences as McMurphy ends up not quite as sane as when he entered. This stage version by Dale Wasserman is based on the tragicomic novel by Ken Kesey. It later became a hugely successful film in 1975 starring Jack Nicholson as the irrepressible McMurphy.
