The Whitehaven and District Amateur Dramatics Society make their return to Rosehill with their latest captivating production, "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest."

As Randle is transferred from a prison farm to a mental institution for evaluation, he anticipates a more lenient atmosphere. However, the authoritarian Nurse Ratched governs the psychiatric ward with unwavering control, maintaining dominance over her patients through intimidation, medication, and electroconvulsive therapy sessions. The ensuing power struggle between the defiant Randle and the rigid Ratched inevitably impacts all the ward's inhabitants, resulting in a gripping tale of resilience and rebellion.

Audiences should be aware that this play contains strong language and mature themes including suicide and the negative portrayal of mental health treatment.

We recommend audiences be aged 15+
