Randle P. McMurphy: the ultimate free spirit. Lover of life, liquor and girls...

The play is set in a US psychiatric hospital in the early 1960’s. Into this world walks RP McMurphy, a larger than life gambler who fakes psychosis in order to avoid the drudgery of a working gaol.

The cast of eccentrics live out their banal routines watched by the tyrannical Nurse Ratched, in constant fear of the brutal treatment dealt out in the “Shock-Shop”. McMurphy vows to take on the institution, risking losing the respect of his inmates, his life and chance of freedom.
