One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest

YC Spring Theatre Opens February 25th

Unable to cope with the insurmountable pressures of the modern world, the patients on Nurse Ratched’s ward at the State Mental Institution are kept tranquilized and docile. Into their sanctuary from society, a strong, high-spirited stranger comes. McMurphy is the perfect foil for Ratched, as he first challenges the complacency of his fellow patients, then incites their resistance, and finally inspires their rebellion. Told from the point of view of Chief Bromden, a long-time inmate presumed to be deaf and dumb, the audience is drawn into this tragicomic allegory for the consequences of questioning authority as they revel in the antics and anguish of one of contemporary literature’s favorite anti-heroes.

The York College theatre's spring production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest will run February 25-28 in Gurganus Hall (10th & Kiplinger), with showings on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.  Panther Press article
