A FEW GOOD MEN
Be Part of the Edgy Courtroom Drama
Stand in the shoes of two Marines, Lance Corporal Harold W. Dawson (Andrew Grassie) and PFC Louden Downey (James Peck), who are on trial for the murder of one of their platoon members. Rookie Navy lawyer Lieutenant Daniel "Danny" Kaffee (Josh Bresette) expects a plea bargain and cover-up of what really happened. But, prodded by a tenacious female member of his defense team, Lieutenant Commander Joanne Galloway (Libby Page), Kaffee eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in doing so, he also puts the Marine code of honor on trial. This Broadway hit, filled with suspense and doses of wise-cracking humor, is based on actual events at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and raises questions about the meaning of honor, dignity and humanity in an increasingly complex world.
