In the organizer's words:
Outside, we probably would never have met. If we had, we would have passed each other by and thought we were completely normal. Whatever that is, the normal. You probably won't find it in here. Here is the cuckoo's nest, ruled by the head nurse, ruler of this closed world. Here we all hang out together, a huge tired pile. Every day the same: pills, food, therapy, pills. You're already all confused in the head. You don't even fight back anymore. You don't say anything. And so nobody disturbs the delirium. But then the new guy, McMurphy, comes in and challenges the reign. "Who's nuts here?" he yells over and over again into the silent room. The ruler pulls out the syringe. And you know exactly: this will not end well. "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is Leander Haußmann's first production at RambaZamba Theater. He has worked at the Thalia Theater Hamburg, the Burgtheater Vienna, the Berliner Ensemble and the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, among others. From 1995-2000 Leander Haußmann was artistic director of the Schauspielhaus Bochum. This year saw the release of his feature film "Leander Haußmann's Stasi Comedy", which, after "Sonnenallee" (2000) and "NVA" (2005), concludes his Stasi trilogy.
