The play is the story of a court-martial of two United States Marines charged with the murder of another Marine and the hardships of their lawyers as they prepare a case to defend their suspects.

Carmadelle said that he picked the play because of the solid material, challenge for the actors, and ability to entertain it has to offer. It was arduous to pick the roles, but Carmadelle said that he believes the actors and actresses are well suited and have great character.
