The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a coverup of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his client and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. Evenings: September 11, 12, 18, 19 @ 7:30 pm Matinees: September 13, 20 @ 2 pm Admission: Advance $17,  Door $19,  Students and active duty military $10 with photo ID
