Don’t miss Footsbarn’s unique version of cult masterpiece One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, combining the powerful narrative of Ken Kesey’s original novel with the company’s uniquely comic slant and mastery of puppetry and masks.

A group of psychiatric patients lives under the tyrannical rule of Nurse Ratchet. Into this purgatory steps McMurphy, a charismatic, life-loving rogue who challenges Ratchet’s power with insolence and laughter. No one knows why he has been committed – is he even insane? A battle of wits begin as McMurphy’s irrepressible life force sweeps through the ward towards a denouement worthy of Greek tragedy.
