The Roy Couzens Theatre at Westville Boys’ High School presents its first theatrical offering for 2016 - Aaron Sorkin’s breakthrough stage production A Few Good Men, opening on February 15.

First produced on Broadway in 1989 and inspiring an Academy Award-nominated film of the same name directed by Rob Reiner and starring Tom Cruise, Demi Moore and Jack Nicholson, Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men tells the story of military lawyers at a court-martial who uncover a high-level conspiracy in the course of defending their clients, two United States Marines, accused of murder.

Based on events that took place at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in July 1986, A Few Good Men is a riveting courtroom drama that investigates both the nature of the military mentality and the Marine code of honour.

This sensational drama, directed by Luke Holder and starring students Murray Clark, Christine Behrmann and Pierre Parrott, delves into the nature of accountability, challenging audiences to come to terms with the morality of life and death situations. Featuring authentic military costume designs by Tracey Campbell and sets by Simon Parkin, A Few Good Men is thought-provoking drama at its most visceral.

A Few Good Men runs from February 15 to 19 at 19h00. Tickets R50 (R30 school students). Block booking discounts are available for school groups of 20 or more. For more information, or bookings, contact 031 267 1330 or email
