PROGRAMME NOTES
Mindy Robinson, director


Cuckoo's Nest is a p1ay adapted from the book by Ken Kesey, first pub1ished in 1962 and adapted for the stage by Dale wasserman a year later.

This is an uncompromising piay about the triumph of the human spirit over the dehumanising forces of repression and enforcement.

It poses the question, in a society where the authorities decide who is sane, where is the piace for the eccentric who is different?

Some treatments described in the piay have now fa11en from favour. However, Kesey's premise still ho1ds — that, though we trust our professionais to do the right thing, under an unscrupuious regime, a label of insanity remains a potent weapon against dissent.
