The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial by Herman Wouk

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.

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.
