MRH HS to Perform ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ February 28-March 2, 2013
Maplewood Richmond Heights theatre students will perform the play One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest February 28-March 2, 2013 at the MRH High School Theatre.
Ken Kesey’s novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was adapted for the stage by Dale Wasserman. It premiered on Broadway in 1963, with Kirk Douglas in the leading role as Randle Patrick McMurphy. The protagonist is a wildly funny rebel who feigns insanity in order to finish his prison sentence in a mental ward rather than a work farm. However, when he meets the fellow members of the asylum, he discovers that they make a lot more sense than the restrictive and conformist establishment, embodied by a control-freak named Nurse Ratched.
