Based on Ken Kesey's landmark novel -- later made into the iconic, Oscar-winning movie starring Jack Nicholson -- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest follows Randle McMurphy, a small-time crook who fakes insanity to get out of a prison sentence. But instead of resting up at the state mental hospital, the rebellious yet charming McMurphy finds himself going toe-to-toe with the authoritarian Nurse Ratched as he attempts to stir up his fellow mental patients. The dynamics of live performance only heighten the tension between these two exquisitely drawn characters. Tough, touching and tragic, this American classic advocates poignantly for the dignity of every single person, no matter how "crazy" they might be. Learn More
When Katherine Harrison discovered that her baby Nathan had cerebral palsy and was most likely mentally retarded, she could not accept her “failure.” Her husband, Ed, made arrangements to place the baby in a group home for the developmentally disabled. The only problem is they didn’t tell their other sons, William, Zach and Robert, about the baby. After years of depression, Katherine’s psychiatrist suggested that she might relieve her guilt by bringing Nathan home on his 7th birthday for a party and every year after. From that day forward, everything changed for the brothers.
The story takes place on Nathan’s 22nd birthday. Unique circumstances of the evening begin to expose the family secrets. The brothers reveal their long-hidden feelings about their parents and their disabled brother. After the final emotional confrontation, everything is out in the open, and the family can begin a new path toward healing, unity and acceptance of Nathan as a family member.
Directed by John Lewis
