One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
A charming rogue contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. He learns his mistake when he immediately clashes with the fierce head nurse. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years- make a deaf and dumb Indian talk! He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the World Series on TV and arranges a midnight party with liquor and loose girls. For his offenses, the head nurse submits him to shock treatment and then tries to force him to undergo the final correction, a frontal lobotomy. Winner of a Tony Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award.
