One Who Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest


The classic story of Randle McMurphy’s anti-establishment rebellion in a mental hospital ruled by a dictatorial and cruel Nurse Ratched. The novel, play and movie did as much to legitimize the anti-establishment struggle of the 1960s as Woodstock, as well as underscored the essential barbarism of much of the 20th century’s psychological “treatments.” Is its message still valid when underfunded state agencies dump mentally ill patients onto Greyhound buses? 8 p.m.; Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave., Suite No. 16, 732-7225, $15.
