As provocative today as when it premiered in 1989, this explosive play inspired the Oscar-nominated film starring Tom Cruise. Set in our nation’s capital, this fast-paced military drama grapples with hard-hitting questions of duty, honor and ethics as three young lawyers represent two Marines accused of a hazing death at Guantanamo Bay. Award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) delivers dialogue crackling with wit and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the final moment.
This play is recommended for age 14 and above and will be performed on the following dates:
March 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 8:00 PM
March 9, 10, 16, 17 at 2:00 PM

“I am very interested in criminal law and would love to pursue this passion through litigation. I am also very interested in the psychological effects of military life…. My goal is to … humanize the lawyers and Marines.”
Justin Brown, of Santa Rosa, plays Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee
“I am an Administration of Justice major, so it’s interesting to be in a show that surrounds my educational goal…. I find it interesting to be able to read the play and recognize theories I have learned from instructors in the AJ department.
