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
