Overview

Overview

When the commanding officer of the U.S.S. Caine is transferred, a new captain, strict disciplinarian Philip Francis Queeg, replaces him. But Queeg’s actions go beyond strictness into psychopathology as he brings the ship and its crew to the brink of destruction. This necessitates a brutal shipboard court-martial that threatens by turns to clear or condemn him. In adapting his novel for the theater, Herman Wouk focused on the heart of the story: the trial and the man at its center. The result is a grimly effective picture of Queeg’s disintegration from perfectionist to paranoid that acts as an indictment not only of an individual but of a society that produces such men.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This compelling account of a mutiny at sea, when performed on stage or screen, seems real. It is fiction, from Wouk's own Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Caine Mutiny, which focuses on a 1945 U.S. Naval court-martial. Edgy, duplicitous Lt. Commander Queeg (portrayed by David Selby) testifies against honest if misguided Lt. Meryk (David Fendig), who deposed him to save a ship in a typhoon. The skilled cast of nine men, including Dan Lauria and Josh Stamberg, tend to speak rapidly when tension builds. In some brief instances, that may make if difficult to identify the speaker. The recording has studio clarity; recommended for students and enthusiasts of mid-20th-century classic drama. Gordon Blackwell, Eastchester, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Unlike the novel, or the movie based on it, the play gives a just the Court-Martial. We are given only the evidence and can view it only as a Jury would. This makes it so much richer than when accompanied by the full story because the reader/audience is left with just a vague sense of what actually happened and can only rely on witness testimony. All in all, a great story and highly recommended whether for fans of the novel, movie, or first-timers.
