Defiance

By John Patrick Shanley

Paperback £13.99

A timely play tackling issues of race and authority within the US Marine Corps - part of a trilogy of plays, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Doubt, that explore issues of power and morality within a hallowed American institution.

1971, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Lt. Col. Morgan Littlefield and his reluctant protégé Capt. Lee King – a young African American officer – clash over issues of race and authority within the Marine Corps, even as the civil rights movement and Vietnam War divide the world outside.

Press Quotes

'very rich and satisfying'

Village Voice

'One of the liveliest, boldest and - against the odds - funniest studies ever of a subject that even hard-core satirists tend to approach on tiptoe'
