One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest opens at Southside Theatre Guild Thursday, October 3. Written by Dale Wasserman, the play is adapted form the novel by Ken Kesey and presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
When Randle Patrick McMurphy gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. But the martinet Nurse Ratched runs the psychiatric ward with an iron fist, keeping her patients cowed through abuse, medication, and sessions of electroconvulsive therapy. The battle of wills between the rebellious McMurphy and the inflexible Ratched soon affects all the ward’s patients.
Performances are scheduled October 3, 4, and 6 and October 10-13 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. (There is no show on October 5.)
Adults: $20 each ($25 at the door)
Children under 12: $12
All Thursday night adult tickets are discounted by $5. Discount will be applied at checkout.
About Southside Theatre Guild
Southside Theatre Guild, located in historic Fairburn, is a 501c3, non-profit organization staffed 100% by volunteers (no one gets paid!) For 47 years we have offered quality entertainment for the local community and is one of Metro Atlanta’s oldest, continually operating community theatre.
In addition to theatrical productions, we also offer improv workshops, summer children’s theatre camp and special events for the community.
We are currently in desperate need of a new roof and have started a KEEP US COVERED fundraising campaign to help offset the costs (estimates range from $80-$100k). Donations can be made on our website.
