originally published: 04/15/2018

Center Players Presents One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest(FREEHOLD, NJ) -- Center Players Dessert Theater presents Dale Wasserman’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, running from May 4th – June 3rd, at Center Playhouse in Freehold, NJ. The drama, directed by Dave McGrath, centers around Randle Patrick McMurphy as he is transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a psychiatric institution.

While he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment, he soon discovers Nurse Ratched runs the psychiatric ward with an iron fist, keeping her patients cowed through abuse, medication and sessions of electroconvulsive therapy. The play examines how the battle of wills between the rebellious McMurphy and the inflexible Ratched soon affects all the ward's patients.

Performances run Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm.  There will be no performances Memorial Day weekend. Tickets are priced at $25-27 and are available online at www.centerplayers.org or by calling 732-462-9093. 

Rounding out the season will be Dinner with Friends, written by Donald Marguiles and directed by Leslie Hochman, running July 27th-August 26th. 

Celebrating its 17th season at Center Playhouse (35 South Street in downtown Freehold, NJ), Center Players Dessert Theater is a respected, award-winning organization, presenting high quality, engaging productions. In addition to their signature plays, the group also sponsors free play reading events and offers dinner and theater packages with several local restaurants. Center Players was founded in 1996, gained status as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization and established a permanent presence in historic downtown Freehold.
