Come share the exploits of Randle Patrick McMurphy, a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. It only takes a couple of hours on Nurse Ratched’s ward for McMurphy to realize this was a mistake.

In Dale Wasserman’s adaptation of Ken Kesey’s novel, McMurphy quickly takes over the ward and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for the past decade, including making a presumed deaf and dumb Native American Indian talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt, and arranges for a rollicking midnight party that ends up having dramatic consequences. This Tony Award winning play was also winner of the 2001 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Revival.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest will be directed by Pam Russell, and performances are scheduled for February 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, and two shows on the 28th (3:00 and 7:30 p.m.) at the Tellico Community Playhouse, located at 304 Lakeside Plaza in Loudon). Shows start at 7:30 p.m. (except for the 3:00 p.m. matinee on Feb 28th), and doors open one hour before the show. Tickets are $20 and will be available at The Village Salon, Salon Anew, and the Tellico Village Yacht Club in Loudon and Kahite Pub & Grille in Vonore.
