Manitoba Theatre Centre presents One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest at The John Hirsch Theatre Mainstage from October 14th through November 6th. Tickets range from $35 to $70 depending on age, date and seat section.

Here is an excerpt from the MTC website:

Into a world of medicated insanity, McMurphy – part saviour, part con man – introduces individuality. Confronting the institutional tyranny of Nurse Ratched, he convinces the other patients to question the status quo. Will the threat of permanent incapacitation rule the day or will McMurphy and his friends win their fight for justice?

This funny yet terrifying story of rebellion and courage in the face of conformity is as relevant today as it was when the revolutionary novel was published in 1962.
