WENATCHEE — Jared Morgan and Matthew Pippin found their stride as murdering burglars in “Wait Until Dark,” then went on to become Vietnam veterans, Texas rednecks, mule drivers in the Spanish Inquisition and members of a traveling Wild West show. That’s just a sampling of the roles they’ve taken during their 10-play acting streak in the past year.
Their biggest challenge, and perhaps one of their last, begins tonight at the Riverside Playhouse in Wenatchee. Morgan stars as Randall McMurphy, a criminal who inspires a patient rebellion at a psychiatric institution in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Pippin is Dale Harding, an early rival who becomes McMurphy’s strongest supporter by the end. Tiffany Mausser portrays Nurse Ratched, the cold oppressive authority determined to keep McMurphy and the others behind lock and key forever.
