The Acutes

Character Analysis

The Acutes are made up of patients who are seen to be "curable." These men include McMurphy, Harding, Cheswick, Billy, and others. As a group, they hang out together during the day and often play cards. It is this group, led by McMurphy, which challenges Nurse Ratched’s authority.
