Winner! Outer Critics Circle Award for
Outstanding Revival of a Play
Kirk Douglas played on Broadway as a
charming rogue who contrives to serve a
short sentence in an airy mental institution
rather in a prison. This, he learns, was a
mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, a
fierce artinet. Quickly, he takes over the
yard and accomplishes what the medical
profession has been unable to do for twelve
years; he makes a presumed deaf and dumb
Indian talk. He leads others out of
introversion, stages a revolt so that they
can see the world series on television, and
arranges a rollicking midnight party with
liquor and chippies. For one offense, the
head nurse has him submit to shock
treatment. The party is too horrid for her
and she forces him to submit to a final
correction a frontal lobotomy. Winner of the
2001 Outer Critics Circle Award for
