This show is part of the 2016-2017 Performing Arts Series Season at the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex.

The production is directed by Fred Motley. R.P. McMurphy is a criminal who gets himself committed to a mental hospital instead of jail because he thinks it’s a lighter sentence.

It doesn’t take long for him to realize his mistake, however, when he runs afoul of the frighteningly sadistic Nurse Ratched, who runs the ward with an iron fist.

In the process, he teaches his fellow mental patients to stand on their own feet once again before events conspire to defeat him.

The dark comedy is adapted from Ken Kesey’s bestselling novel.

This show has some adult themes.
