WCT presents "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial"

Friday, December 1

This will be a “reader’s theater” reprisal of the original show produced at the Barn (Winfield Fairgrounds) in February/March 1980. Show dates are December 1 and 2, 2017 in Meyer Hall on the Baden Square campus. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. This is a Christmas gift from WCT to Winfield and surrounding areas. There is no charge, but donations are greatly appreciated. The play is based on a Pulitzer Prize winning novel about a court martial which has been adapted by the author into a superior stage thriller. A young lieutenant who relieved his captain of command in the midst of a typhoon on the grounds that the captain was psychopathic in the crisis and was directing the ship and its crew to its destruction faces harrowing odds. Naval tradition is against him, but testimony eventually reveals a devastating picture of the captain's disintegration.
