Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward's University presents ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
When R.P. McMurphy (Brent Werzner, '03) lands in the state mental hospital, he finds himself in a battle bigger than he ever expected: the battle between conformity and individuality. Through his attempts to liberate his fellow inmates from the domineering emotional and psychological clutches of Nurse Ratched (Elizabeth Wakehouse, '02), he falls prey to the power and brutality of institutional complacency.
