Mental health hospital patient Randle McMurphy leads a revolt against Nurse Ratched in this stage adaptation of the Ken Kesey novel.

Join us for a talk back: Friday January 27 and Friday February 3.

The talkback is a chance to discuss the play with the actors, the director and sometimes the playwright. It can connect the venue to its audience, deepen understanding of the work, and make the audience feel more like a participant and not merely an observer. Theater is a social business and talkbacks are a useful way to engage audiences and deepen their experience. It can be useful for people sorting out what they’ve just seen, how they feel about it and why.

The subject matter of mental health institutions and treatments addressed in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is one reason for this production’s talkback. Psychologist Carolyn Giannone will be on hand as a moderator for discussions. Topics of conversation will include the actors’ processes for portraying their characters, the role of mental health care and stigma, and the true meaning of power, control, and freedom. The cast, some crew members, and the director will also be on hand to field questions.
