Description

RHCR Theatre presents "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" under the direction of Kerry Covington.

The show will take place at the Village (formerly Artisan's Sanctuary) located at 45 16th Ave SW in Czech Village on April 28th, 29th, and 30th (matinee), and May 5th & 6th.

RHCR Theatre would like to advise parents with children that this play is rated "R" for language and adult content. Children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or an adult guardian.

The dramatic comedy by Dale Wasserman is based on the 1962 novel by Ken Kesey.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"McMurphy is a charming rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake.

He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce martinet. Quickly, he takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years; he makes a presumed deaf and unintelligible Indian talk. He leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the world series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies.

For one of his offenses, the head nurse has him submit to shock treatment. The party is too horrid for her and she forces him to submit to a final correction... a frontal lobotomy."

Don't miss this talented cast and amazing show at The VIllage!

As part of RHCR's commitment to giving back to the community, we are also trying to raise awareness about important causes that our community faces, and the organizations that serve these causes.

"About a third of all people experiencing mental illnesses and about half of people living with severe mental illnesses also experience substance abuse. These statistics are mirrored in the substance abuse community, where about a third of all alcohol abusers and more than half of all drug abusers report experiencing a mental illness." (-copyright 2017, National Alliance on Mental Illness)

For this production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, we're raising awareness for the Safe Place Foundation, a local organization that provides a drug and alcohol free living environment with ongoing staff support, community volunteer involvement and peer-to-peer mentorship. Their mission is to return recovered men to family and community. We will have information available about the Safe Place Foundation, and provide an opportunity for you to help their cause.

See you there!!!!!
