UC Theater Presents “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest”

Ursinus College Theater’s first fall production will be One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Oct. 6 through 9, at 7:30 p.m. in The Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center’s Blackbox Studio Theater.

Domenick Scudera, associate professor of theater at Ursinus, will direct Dale Wasserman’s play, which is based on the novel by Ken Kesey.  Set in a mental institution, the plot pits Randle P. McMurphy against Nurse Mildred Ratchet.  McMurphy is a rebellious man who contrives to serve a short sentence in a mental institution rather than in prison.  He convinces other inmates to stage a revolt against Ratchet and the establishment, resulting in a power struggle between freewill and order. – BA
