McMurphy contrives to serve a short sentence in a state mental institution rather than serve time in prison on a work farm. The cost of this decision becomes apparent as he challenges the dictatorship of Nurse Ratchet. While this starts as a sport, it soon turns to a grim struggle; an all-out war between authority and free will. The play, based on the 1962 novel, shows how the lives of both patients and staff are changed forever as they are caught in the tug of war between these two strong-willed characters.
