This Fall the Shasta College Theatre Department is excited to announce its fall production of Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men. Based on events that took place at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in 1986, A Few Good Men pits military lawyers against one another in a court martial case to uncover a high-level conspiracy resulting in the murder of a United States Marine. In a riveting courtroom drama Navy lawyers Lt. Cmdr. Joanne Galloway and Lt. Daniel Kaffee find themselves asking complex questions of honor, duty, and humanity that demand an answer. A Few Good Men premiered on Broadway in 1989 and was released as a successful film starring Tom Cruise, Demi Moore and Jack Nicholson in 1992.
