R.P. McMurphy, a charming rougue, contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental hospital rather than in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse and wages war on the institution that confines him; he threatens to tear down the thin boundaries between the sane and the insane. McMurphy leads inmates into revolution and out of introversion, brightening up an otherwise terrifyingly gray world. This is a contemporary tragedy - at times hilarious, at others heroic, but consistently liberating. Winner of both the 2001 Tony Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play. "Cuckoo is captivating." N.Y. Post. "Scarifying and powerful." N.Y. Times. "Funny, touching, and exciting." N.Y. Daily News. "One of the finest, most
