THE stage version of the best-selling film and novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, is to be performed at a theatre in WGC.
From tomorrow (Friday) until next Saturday (February 28) the show, by Dale Wasserman, will be on at the Barn Theatre in Handside Lane.
The plot features the story of the charming rogue, Mr McMurphy, who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental hospital rather than in a prison.
He clashes with the head nurse and leads inmates into revolution and out of introversion, brightening up an otherwise grey world.

The show is said to be a contemporary tragedy - "at times hilarious, at others heroic, but consistently liberating".
