“A Few Good Men” at The Cotuit Center for the Arts 1/25-2/11

“A Few Good Men” at The Cotuit Center for the Arts 1/25-2/11

January 25, 2018

We are thrilled to open our 2018 theater season with A Few Good Men, by Aaron Sorkin. This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

Directed by Stephen Ross and Richard Martin.
January 25-February 11, 2018
Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2:00pm
(No performance Sunday, February 4)
Tickets $30, $25 for members, $28 for seniors/veterans
