A Few Good Men is a well-known play-turned-film by Aaron Sorkin (writer of The West Wing and The American President), produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. New York City. You may be familiar with the movie starring Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore and Tom Cruise; now see the more powerful and more intimate, original stage play. A Few Good Men is based on a true story of military lawyers at a court-martial defending two U.S. Marines who were accused of murder - and in the process, uncover a high-level conspiracy.
