One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, May 25-29

playbill_OneFlew

When  Randle Patrick McMurphy (Joel Moore) gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. What he finds is Nurse Ratched (Marilyn Marshall-Miller) running HER psychiatric ward with an iron fist. She keeps her patients cowed through abhor, medication, and sessions of electroconvulsive shock therapy. The battle of wills between the rebellious and the inflexible soon affects the ward’s patients.

Performances are May 25th through May 29th. Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 7:30pm, with a 2:30pm matinee on Sunday. To reserve tickets, contact the Box Office at (417) 623-3638, or online at joplinlittletheatre.org.
