CUCKOO'S NEST Design Blog Post #4

Our Resident Dramaturg, Elizabeth Pool, keeps a blog specifically for the artistic team for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.  Most of her posts include "top secret" material, but she has graciously shared a few of them with us so we can let you in on a little of what inspires the designers for the show.  Enjoy!


The title One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is derived from a Mother Goose nursery rhyme called Vintery, Mintery, Cutery, Corn. The full text is as follows:

Vintery, mintery, cutery, corn
Apple seed and apple thorn;
Wire, briar, limber lock,
Three geese in a flock.
One flew east,
And one flew west,
And one flew over the cuckoo's nest.
