‘A Few Good Men’ Comes to Cotuit Center for the Arts

COTUIT – “You can’t handle the truth!”

Jack Nicholson delivered one of the most quoted movie lines of all time in 1992’s “A Few Good Men,” and now the courtroom drama comes to the Cotuit Center for the Arts.

The Steve Ross directed play runs from January 25 through February 11 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Cotuit Center for the Arts Executive Director David Kuehn says they are thrilled to open the 2018 theater season with the powerful drama.

Inspired by a true story, “A Few Good Men” takes place in 1986 in Washington D.C. and at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay.

Lt. Daniel Kaffee is asked to defend two Marines on trial for the murder of Private Santiago, a fellow Marine who was to be transferred as a result of his poor behavior. He was instead harshly disciplined.

Kaffee attempts to coax the hard-edged military commander Col. Nathan Jessep to confess to ordering the murder of Private Santiago.

The original work was written by Aaron Sorkin and opened on Broadway in 1989 and a few years later was turned into the feature film starring Nicholson, Tom Cruise and Demi Moore.

Tickets are $30, $28 for seniors and vets, $25 for members and $15 for students. To purchase tickets visit arts on the cape dot org.
