Aaron Sorkin’s riveting courtroom drama A Few Good Men will be on stage at Peninsula Players Theater through August 14.
A Few Good Men follows the absorbing story of deception and conspiracy at high levels of the military. An inexperienced member of the Navy Judge Advocate Generals’ Corps (JAG Corps) squares-off against top brass in an attempt to defend two Marines who are accused of murdering one of their own in an allegedly ordered hazing incident.
In an interview Sorkin said his inspiration for A Few Good Men is based on an experience his sister, Barbara, had in the JAG corps, defending some Marines accused of assault at Guantanamo Bay.
A Few Good Men took him to stardom after its 1989 stage debut at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and its Broadway debut at the Music Box Theatre. He also wrote the screenplay for the 1992 release which earned Jack Nicholson an Oscar nomination.
