The drama, adapted from the novel by Ken Kesey centers around a ward in a mental institution where the uneven distribution of power is questioned by new arrival, R.P. McMurphy (John DeMerell). Nurse Ratched (Betty DeWulf) runs her ward with a laser like focus on “the rules” – which is challenged by McMurphy’s habitual rule breaking and gambling. The other inmates begin to flock to him, including the stuttering Billy Bibbit (Daniel DeRey) and the silent Chief Bromden (Ben Feliciano). McMurphy is determined to be free; but not before winning some money by making “The Big Nurse” lose her cool and throwing a party for his new friends. However, when rules get broken – there are always consequences.
