LACONIA — Streetcar Theater Company will be putting on the production "A Few Good Men" at the Laconia High School auditorium Friday and Saturday, November 7-8 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, November 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Greenlaw's Music in downtown Laconia, online at streetcarcompany.com or at the door on the day of the performance.
In 1986, television writer and producer Aaron Sorkin wrote the Tony nominated play "A Few Good Men" which was based on true events at Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba. The story follows the arrest, incarceration and trial of two Navy enlisted men played by young actors Braeden Alward and Trevor Lewis, who kill a fellow marine during a hazing incident called a 'code red'. The action takes place in and around Washington DC and Gitmo, Cuba. Lead attorney for the defense Lt. Dan Kaffee is portrayed by local actor Chris Fernandez. Kaffee's approach to the case changes as he and his fellow attorneys played by Scott Alward who was most recently seen as Jean Val Jean in Streetcar's production of Les Miserables and Doreen Sheppard who has appeared on stage both in the Lakes Region as well as Concord and Manchester.
The reluctant team travels to Cuba where they meet Colonel Nathan Jessup played by stage veteran Rick Kincaid. The role of Jessup is very well known from the movie adaptation of the stage play made famous by Jack Nicholson and also starring Tom Cruise and Demi Moore. As the plot furthers, the audience will be kept on their toes as the story is told through flashbacks, quick setting changes and courtroom drama. The final climatic scene encourage participants to rethink the concepts of freedom, service and honor.
Other performers in this must see production include; Rodney Martel as tough as nails marine Lt. JJ Kendrick, Eric Marsh as JAG attorney Capt. Whitakker, Johan Andersen as Doctor Stone, Peter Ayer as the self-sacrificing executive officer Capt. Markinson, Hillary Ayers as prosecuting attorney Jackie Ross, Cory Chapman as Cpl. Howard, and Riley Alward, Kyleih Farley, Melissa Bigler and Saphaedra Renee as lawyers, MPs and courtroom personnel.
