    About "Dale Wasserman"

      • Dale Wasserman

        Dale Wasserman was an American playwright.His protagonists are a bit like Wasserman himself raffish rebels, fiercely independent fools poets, madmen and misfits societal outcasts who defy authority and tilt at windmills, reluctant heroes sometimes anti heroes , who are called upon to make some extraordinary sacrifice in order to protect or preserve their personal freedom or that of others.


    1. Incredible:) It is one of those stories which remain memorably alive. The movie is as hilarious as the story itself.

    2. The book, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest by Ken Kesey was a powerful and thought provoking story about the conditions and lives of a group of men in a mental asylum. The story follows Chief Bromden, a half-Indian man, who reflects on his time at the Oregon psychiatric hospital. He illustrates the rough conditions in the hospital, usually caused by Nurse Ratched, a strict and cruel leader in the asylum. When Randle McMurphy, a somewhat cocky and colorful man transfers to the hospital, he begins t [...]

    3. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey and adapted for the BBCAnother version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at:- youtube/playlist?listThis is my third encounter with this work.First I saw the marvelous film, directed by the incredible Milos Forman and with the dazzling Jack Nicholson in the title role.Then I have read the original, which was satisfying, but not overwhelming, at least the way I see it now.But I can be influenced by the latest, less rewarding rendi [...]

    4. It takes considerable chutzpah to tackle a pretty excellent novel and try to pare it down into a three-act play; it takes some serious skill to make it a compelling drama that loses very little of the original text in terms of pathos and power. I'm going to have to re-visit Kesey's novel now and see how much, if anything, was lost in this translation.

    5. This is a phenomenal book, but sad at the same time, I also watched the film, although the film was good there's nothing that can compare to the book. In the mental hospital it appeared from day one that they just wanted to control the patients. Brilliant, brilliant

    6. The Narrator ,a son of an Indian chief named Bromden, is locked up in this mental hospital with a woman named Ratched,or big nurse. A new patient comes into the ward and he is referred to as McMurphy. Mcmurphy spends his time harassing Big nurse and starts to show the inmates independence. The author Ken Kesey has great examples about how the patients are trapped in there own mind with the allusion of the fog machine and the growing movement that McMurphy starts. He also shows the changes in th [...]

    7. Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a really nice interesting novel to learn from. It was published in 1962, but still had a familiar plot and idea in the book that would take place in present days. It’s a true story by Kesey that she studied at a mental asylum on some group of men, on how these men were being treated wrong and harsh by the Nurse Ratched. The One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest presents clear thoughts on reality and insanity. This book clearly demonstrates on what [...]

    8. This script moves quickly, follows the novel well, and seems to hit the highs and lows point on point. I like it better than the screenplay, and McMurphy seems much more playful--more like his novel character--than the movie's Randle P. The plot line is an effective condensation of the novel, and it establishes The Chief, R.P. McMurphy, Billy Bibbit, Scanlon, Harding, Cheswick et. al. as whole characters. Nurse Ratched is more villainous in the play, less subtle than her novel's counterpart, but [...]

    9. I liked this novel because it shows how the underdog always has certain impact in any kind of situation. The story takes place in a Psychiatric center in Oregon. All of the male patients are under the control of the tyrant nurse Ratched. Ratched manages the ward harshly, making everyone scared and submissive to her. One day a new patient comes in and changes everything. Randle Mcmurphy is a particular character that plants humor and hope for those inside the hospital. He acts and rebels against [...]

    10. Randle McMurphy is the novel’s protagonist. He is redheaded, of Irish descent, and a famed gambler who is covered in tattoos and scars. He arrives to a orderly mental asylum and rebels against dominating establishment that the insane patients face. He is most likely only pretending to be insane, as he believes that the asylum would be better than working all day on a farm. McMurphy shows that the Nurse Ratched is manipulating the patients to ensure her authority, and when the patients realized [...]

    11. Our protagonist is committed to a mental institution. He meets other patients who are needy but have in actuality committed themselves to the hospital. Surprised at this he sociologically creates organized havoc and a rebellion of sorts in the institution. For a short time others enjoy his actions and use him as a model for leadership.The doctor, head nurse and staff then use Machiavellian methods and perform a lobotomy on our protagonist. Order is restored in the eyes of most characters until t [...]

    12. As a read, I would only give it 3 stars. This script needs to be acted out by a good cast in order to get the full effect of the book, and that's an herculean task. All in all, though, this is a fine adaptation. I love the monologue they added for Nurse Ratched, and I'm psyched that I get to work on it for production. I was disappointed to see some of my favorite McMurphy dialogue from the book cut, and then tacked on at the end as the patients are recalling the hilarious things he said and did, [...]

    13. I was actually in this play right after college. I had read this book in college so when I got the opportunity to be in the play it was really an honor for me. I had a small part (Candy Starr), but it was the first play I did where I felt I was part of something special. Anyway, the play is not as good as the book - there's a lot that can't be translated from the page to the stage (or film for that matter) plus you have the limits of actually doing it on stage. For example, there's no scene wher [...]

    14. This is a fantastic adaptation of Ken Kesey's classic novel and remains edgy, charming and overall, quite moving. It was interesting to experience this as a play, as I read the book back in high school. Of course, McMurphy is still a wild, charming rebel, and the authority of Nurse Ratched still feels overbearing and bureaucratic. Looking at this story again and how the characters connect reveals a bigger theme of friendship. Several scenes with McMurphy and Chief Bromden are so touching and pow [...]

    15. This book is a masterpiece of desperation. It flows from cover to cover. Everyone can relate with the great McMurphy as he tries to figure out oppressive authority. He wages war, not just against Nurse Ratched, but against all of societies ideas that have kept these people from venturing out. The people society deems as insane are really those who are sane who understand the saneness of society. Sit back and be prepared to laugh and cry and dig every line as McMurphy throws his big shovel into t [...]

    16. i abhorred this bookoh yes, i admit the head nurse was really cruel and intimidating to the poor slightly mental folks, but at the same time, the protagonist of this book is a drunken, swearing, perverted rapist who makes everyone sin along with him, and ends up having a tragic lobotomy which scared me to death. a horribly scary ending. at the same timea horrible protagonist. and antagonist. i couldn't tell who was evil and who was good the whole book was that messed up. is it possibly to rate a [...]

    17. I read this book as part of my EPQ about mental illness.While this book genuinely made me cry (NO NOT BILLY) and I am glad I used this in my Extended Project, it is a little too heavy compared to books I normally like to read as my hobby. It showed how bad institutions were, even up in the 60's and made me angry with society and how they mistreat the mentally ill.I probably will not come back to this for a while, if I ever do though, I'm sure to cry as much as I did the first time

    18. I really enjoyed reading this book! It deserves five stars because I am a fan pf psychotic books. The book is a perfect depiction of what life used to be like in a ward for the "crazies". McMurphy one of the patients is the perfect symbol for retaliation against the system. He is courages and helps the other patients stand up to nurse.

    19. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest follows the story of Randall McMurphy, who throughout the novel, attempts to disrupt the power structure controlling both him and the other patients of a mental hospital.An excellent analogy for man's struggle for individual freedom in an unfairly controlled world.

    20. Would improve a reader's sense of empathy. The language used upon the main character's behalf questions one's own sanity as you sink into the perception of the world around him. Good, classical read. Movie is enjoyable as well, but certainly off from many of the book's finer details (as can be expected with any novel-based movie).

    21. I read this play version of the classic novel with my 11th graders. I LOVE IT. It is my favorite unit of the entire year. I have to censor a lot of the language, but the students absolutely love acting out the parts and discussing the heroism of McMurphy. SUCH an effective play for high schoolers.

    22. From start to finish, a play to love read and performed. Wasserman was a true storyteller in every sense of the way. McMurphy, Ratched, and the Chief are all interesting, archetypal, and provocative characters within the intriguing setting of a mental institution. If you enjoyed the film, you'll like this dramatic version even more.

    23. Revived in 2001, this play is still intense—to read. To watch, I am sure, it is electric. Can we find an incandescent Randle P. McMurphy, a silent, but not, and huge Chief Bowden, a smiling, pleasant, evil Nurse Ratched? Gene Wilder played Billy Bibbit in Kirk Douglas’ 1963 production and Danny DeVito played Martini in 1971, so these parts are all important in this riveting play too.

    24. A cool story. You all have probably seen the movie and it is like that but it goes deeper and of course includes things the movie didn't have time or room for. Like the fact that Chief Bromden was schizoid. Not dangerous, just experienced a lot of stuff that no one else even knew about. Plus, I like Ken Kesey as a historic character. I could go on about that,,,,,,
