“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” features adult language and themes and is not suitable for all audiences. The play is set in a structured insane asylum where order and conformity are the only indicators of sanity. When charming rogue Randle McMurphy (John Hutchinson) comes to the asylum after faking insanity to avoid prison work detail, he immediately disdains the idea of conformity. He leads his fellow inmates, a motley crew of voluntary commits including shy mama’s boy Billy (Anthony Garcia) and silent Native American Chief Bromden (Thom Nelson), in a series of acts, including parties and revolts, to assert some independence. These acts are not tolerated by the fierce and unyielding head nurse, Nurse Ratched (AvaLee Abraham). McMurphy soon learns that the authorities have horrible and terrifying methods in place to ensure conformity.
