Tyrannical Nurse Ratched rules her ward in a British mental hospital with a strict, unbending routine. Her patients, cowed by mind-numbing medication and the threat of electric shock therapy, dare not oppose her. Everything changes with the arrival of McMurphy, the swaggering trickster with a devilish grin. McMurphy challenges everyone's beliefs about madness... who, of them all, is really insane? Adapted by Dave Wasserman for the stage from Ken Kesey's 1962 novel, the award winning Liverpool University Drama Society returns to the Fringe with this classic play.
