Based on the seminal 1960s novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest left an indelible mark on contemporary theatre. Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately devastating, it is the unforgettable story of patients in a mental institution, a world where sanity means conformity.
First presented at Forge as part of our 17th season, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a powerful exploration of the beauty — and the danger — of being original.
Directed by Wendy Mirto
Wendy joined Forge in 1993. Her first show was ANYTHING GOES.
