One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was first published in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement and drug fueled counter-culture of the sixties. It stood in the face of oppression and was a celebration of liberty under the boot-heel of authority. Perhaps more relevant now than ever, the play stands as a totem for the beauty of the individual.
The cast includes Hope Garrett Cook as Nurse Ratched, Cooper Helm as R.P. McMurphy, Casey Harmon as Chief Bromden and Jim Levert as Dale Harding. Other cast members include Gus Fontenot, Andre Trahan, Jack Sorenson, Scott Hermes, Edward DeMahy, Roger Peak, Kayla Naquin, Mitch Barry, Michael Smith, Catherine Arceneaux, Abigail Deger, Todras Sam and Jackie Robertson.
The Lauren-Reilly Eliot Company's previous productions include Buried Child, At Home at the Zoo and Deathtrap and Dinner with Friends.
