One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest @ Roo Theatre

22 September to 30 September
Times to be advised Save to calendar

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest has left an indelible mark on literature, theatre and film. It is a boisterous, ribald and ultimately devastating story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants. 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 the beauty and the danger of being an original.

Playwright Dale Wasserman adapted One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest from the novel by Ken Kesey; the play opened on Broadway in 1963 with Kirk Douglas as McMurphy, Ed Ames as the Chief and Gene Wilder as Billy. After opening on Broadway, The New York Times called the play “scarifying and powerful,” while New York Daily News called it “funny, touching, and exciting.” In 1975, a film version was released and it was the first film to win Academy Awards for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay since It Happened One Night in 1934. It remains one of only three films to have swept the top five categories at the Oscars.
