A Few Good Men


Can you handle the truth?


Navy lawyer Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee is assigned to defend two Marines, Private First Class (PFC.) Louden Downey and Lance Corporal Harold Dawson, who are accused of the murder of fellow leatherneck PFC. William Santiago at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Kaffee has a reputation of plea bargains for his clients rather than bring them to trial, which is probably why he was assigned this potentially embarrassing case. But when Lieutenant Commander Joanne Galloway is assigned to assist Kaffee, she is convinced there's more to the matter than they've been led to believe and persuades him to take the case to court.

A Few Good Men is written by Aaron Benjamin Sorkin (born June 9, 1961), an Academy and Emmy-award winning American screenwriter, producer, and playwright, whose works include The American President, The West Wing, Sports Night, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Charlie Wilson's War, The Social Network and The Newsroom.

Sorkin got the inspiration for this play from a phone conversation with his sister Deborah, who had graduated from Boston University Law School and signed up for a three-year stint with the Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps. She was going to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base to defend a group of Marines who came close to killing a fellow Marine. He wrote much of the story on cocktail napkins while bartending at the Palace Theatre on Broadway.

The Director has brought together a versatile and gifted cast of all ages, which seeks to reflect Aaron Sorkin’s vision for the characters portrayed on the stage as a realistic representation rather than that which is often stereotyped in a Hollywood Blockbuster!

You will surely enjoy watching this explosive drama come to life on the STG stage.
