Director Judith La Forest said the performance would appeal to anyone who loves good theatre and are intrigued to compare it to the iconic movie featuring Jack Nicholson as McMurphy and Louise Fletcher and Nurse Ratched.

The 1974 psychological comedy-drama is considered by many critics as one of the greatest films ever made.
