The Star Bar Players and Theatre 'd Art are teaming up for the first time to present a co-production of Ken Kesey's classic thriller, adapted by Dale Wasserman:
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST!
"Nurse Ratched runs her ward in the state mental institution like a dictator, exploiting a
group of broken men with psychological manipulation, bending their minds to conform to
her puritanical order. The drudgery of their world and her perfect control of the situation
are shattered by the arrival of Randle P. McMurphy, a self-confessed con-man, criminal
and gambler who feigns insanity in order to avoid the prison work farm. When Ratched’s
and McMurphy’s opposing personalities collide, what begins as a simple bet between the
men in the ward quickly becomes a psychological battle for the freedom and willpower of
all the men’s’ lives."

The Star Bar Players & Theatre 'd Art
Two local theater companies (one claiming the longest ongoing history in Colorado Springs, the other still relatively new on the scene) have been sharing the downtown theater space, THEATREdART, staggering each company's productions throughout the season...
But now, The Star Bar Players and Theatre 'd Art have joined forces, pooled assets, and assembled an ensemble of some of their finest talents to present their first-ever co-production.
Directed by actor Michael Lee (who has appeared in plays with both companies), the ensemble features such seasoned pros as Alysabeth Clements and Jason Lythgoe in the leading roles alongside other regional veterans, UCCS students, and local artists -- the best cast and crew that Star Bar and TdA have to offer.
Members of each company discovered a mutual desire to produce the play when longtime TdA performer Michael Lee expressed his desire to direct it. Now, thanks to the collaborative effort and the love of the craft, The Star Bar Players and Theatre 'd Art proudly present the psychological tale of liberation brought to life on stage.
