Aaron Sorkin’s groundbreaking debut A Few Good Men tells the story of a group of military lawyers assigned to defend two Marines in Guantanamo Bay. During the course of the trial, they uncover a high-level conspiracy designed to eliminate weaker soldiers in the name of patriotism.
A Few Good Men had a successful run on Broadway in 1989 and went on to be produced all over the world. Tom Hulce, who originated the role of Lt. Kaffee, was nominated for Best Actor at the Tony Awards that year. NBC has slated a live television broadcast of the play to appear in 2017, complete with a brand-new teleplay adapted by Sorkin.
