Tragedy is blessedly laced with levity in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, an adaptation of Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel of the same name. The resiliency of the human spirit rises to meet the heartbreak of institutionalized mental health when R.P. McMurphy arrives as a rogue savior in the battle for the hearts and minds of patients against the authoritarian Nurse Ratched. Best known for its Academy Award-winning 1975 film adaptation, this powerful story was last performed on the Pull-Tight stage during the 1985-86 season.
