The Play

A prisoner feigns psychosis in order to be transferred from the prison work farm to the perceived easier option of a mental institution. He, however, arrives on a psychiatric ward ruled by a tyrannical nurse. His future and those of his fellow patients come to depend on whoever wins the ensuing battle of wills between Randle P. McMurphy and Nurse Mildred Ratchet.

The Group


Lislea Dramatic Players were formed in 1940 and have staged productions practically every year since. They wish to dedicate their presentation of ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ to the late Kathleen McParland who played leading roles in the 1940s and 50s. This year they welcome back Christopher Quinn and Gerry McBrien after an absence of some time and wish Katie Cunningham well in her debut performance as Nurse Flinn, may she ‘break a leg’.
