One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest By Dale Wasserman, based on the Novel by Ken Kesey, is directed by Terry Johnson.
The cast inso includes Alex Kingston (Nurse Ratched).
Set in the sterile confines of a US mental hospital in the early 1960s. Into this world walks McMurphy, a violent, larger-than-life gambler who has faked psychosis to avoid the drudgery of a working goal.
The cast of eccentrics live out their banal routines watched over by the tyrannical Nurse Ratched and in constant fear of the brutal treatment dealt out in the 'Shock-Shop'. Randle vows to fight one-man battle against the institution, risking losing the respect of the inmates, his life and chances of freedom. The ensuing power struggle between Randle and Nurse Ratched results in a suicide, a murder and a liberation.
