Tensions run high, and the stakes run even higher, when two U. S. soldiers find themselves on trial for the death of a fellow Marine in the Civic Theatre performance of A Few Good Men.
When a fresh, young Navy lawyer is prodded into plotting a defense case, rather than a plea bargain, the situation sparks an explosive trial that places the Marine code of honor under fire.
This intense drama was written by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network), and later adapted the play for the 1992 film of the same name starring Tom Cruise and Demi Moore.
A Few Good Men will be performed: Sat., Sept 8, 8 p.m., with performances on Sun., Sept. 9, 2 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 14, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 15, 8 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 16, 2 p.m. All performances are at the Arts United Center, 303 East Main Street in downtown Fort Wayne.
