Synopsis

“A Few Good Men” tells about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

By Aaron Sorkin

Historian’s Corner

The popular military courtroom drama “A Few Good Men” by Aaron Sorkin was a revival for Players. The show was first performed in 2002. The 2019 production received high praise from the reviewer and was an audience favorite as they sat enthralled by the performers and the story that they had to tell. There were many newcomers in the cast of 18. This production was also the directorial debut of Jeff Ready and the co-producing debut for Eli Mundy.
