A Few Good Men
By Aaron Sorkin. Part of the Hastings Fringe Festival.
“Enormously entertaining” New York Daily News.
While A Few Good Men is best remembered as the blockbusting film starring Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson, it started life on Broadway. It tells the story of a court case where the military establishment tries to cover up the murder of a young marine by his fellow soldiers.
A callow young lawyer, Lt Daniel Kaffee, attempts to convince the court that the imposing Colonel Jessup is guilty of conspiracy – and in so doing puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honour on trial.
