A Few Good Men

A Powerful Courtroom Drama

By Aaron Sorkin

Director Marti Maraden
Set Designer Sean Mulcahy
Costume Designer Jennifer Wonnacott
Lighting Designer Kevin Fraser

 

March 4 to March 22 Calendar Icon

St. Jacobs Country Playhouse

Before it became an Academy Award®-nominated movie, A Few Good Men was the groundbreaking first play by then-unknown author Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Charlie Wilson's War, Moneyball, The Social Network, and many more), who would become one of the greatest screenwriters of the 21st century.

When two marines are accused of killing one of their own at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, hotshot young lawyer Daniel Kaffee, with a penchant for plea bargains, is tasked with their defense. It looks like a simple case of soldiers behaving badly until evidence suggests that high-ranking officials may have ordered an illicit disciplinary measure known only as a "Code Red." When fellow lawyer and Naval investigator Lieutenant Commander Joanne Galloway suspects a cover up, the legal team must face the highest authorities, and put the entire marine code of honour on trial in order to solve the case. But can they "handle the truth?"

Inspired by actual events, this gripping story of conspiracy and corruption in the name of patriotism is a fascinating look at morality in our modern age.
