About this show

By West Wing author Aaron Sorkin, A Few Good Men is a court- martial thriller in which two marines stationed in Guantanamo Bay are accused of the death of a weaker marine. Dan Kaffee, a dispassionate attorney in the US Navy is goaded on by a righteous-minded co-counsel, Lieutenant Joanne Gallaway to make an argument rather than plea bargain. The play unfolds revealing the practice of unsanctioned hazing on the base and a cover-up authorized from the top Commanding Officer Colonel Roy Jessup. This production is unique in its casting of several main characters as women including the prosecuting attorney and the honor-bound Private Dawson, resulting in a refreshing depiction of women in the military.
