One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
Directed by David Blessinger
Attleboro Community Theatre kicks off its 60th season with the famed, Tony Award-winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, written by Dale Wasserman (adapted from the novel by Ken Kesey) and directed by Dave Blessinger.
Randle McMurphy, a charming rogue, contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution, rather than in a prison. This, he learns, is a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years: He makes a presumed deaf and dumb Native American talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the world series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. For one offense, the head nurse has him submit to shock treatment. The party is too horrid for her, and she forces him to submit to a terrifying final correction.
