EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – A Few Good Men, a drama by playwright Aaron Sorkin and
directed by Gregory Newton, will open at Playhouse 22 on Friday, November
6.  Famous for the dialogue statement,"I want the truth," and the response, "You can't handle the truth," A Few Good Men tells the story of generational conflict, colliding loyalties, and the beliefs that guide men's actions.  

First produced on Broadway in 1989, A Few Good Men centers on the struggles of
military lawyers at a court-martial who uncover a high-level conspiracy
while in the course of defending their clients - two United States Marines
accused of murder. The 1992 movie version starred Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Kevin Bacon, and Demi Moore. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best
Picture and the Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay.  Aaron Sorkin directed and wrote both the play and the film.  He later was recognized for his work on The Social Network, the recent film Steve Jobs, and the television series The West Wing and The Newsroom.

Performances are Friday evenings at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and
Sundays at 3 p.m., closing November 22.
