I directed this in my first school, in 1977. Things were a LOT different then. The kids, parents, and administration loved the production, but this was not long after the movie came out in 1975.
I would see problems with a high school production today with the whole issue of the Chief's decision to end McMurphy's vegetative state at the end of the play. Choosing this play would really depend on the school's demographic.
