STERLING PLAYMAKERS PRESENTS ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST
98 Seneca Ridge Dr
Sterling, VA 20164
Sterling Playmakers, in partnership with LCPRCS’ Sterling Community Center, announces their upcoming production of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, directed by Scott Strasbaugh and produced by Lora Buckman. It is a dramatic comedy where a charming rogue schemes to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution to avoid prison work detail. Randle P. McMurphy is sent to the state mental hospital for evaluation where he encounters a motley crew of mostly voluntary inmates and clashes with the fierce head nurse. A boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel, McMurphy takes over the yard and rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched. He promotes gambling in the ward, smuggles in liquor and women, and openly defies the rules at every turn. This insolence, which starts as sport, soon develops into a grim battle between the two unyielding opponents.
