13 Men Various Ages
The role of Lieutenant Colonel Nathan Jessep has been cast.
Lance Cpl. Harold Dawson - Defendant, accused of murdering Private William Santiago. Dawson is Downey's squad leader, slightly faster on his feet than Downey, and tends to make decisions for both of them. Dawson has the utmost respect for military protocol and honor. Regular Marine, follows orders. The Corps is his life.
Pfc. Louden Downey - Defendant, accused of murdering Private William Santiago in conspiracy with Dawson. Follows orders. Not a real deep thinker. He believes completely in the military ideals of honor and integrity, and that makes it hard for him to admit that any of his commanding officers have led him astray. Downey usually follows Dawson's lead.
Lt. J.G. Daniel A. Kaffee - Very bright, well-educated son of a legendary trial attorney and lawmaker. Young Navy lawyer with a reputation for a quick plea bargain. Kaffee is afraid to try his best and not measure up, so to escape this, he simply doesn't try.
Lt. Cmdr. Joanne Galloway (FEMALE) - The only woman in the play, she's worked hard to come as far as she has. By the book, aggressive, assertive J.A.G. lawyer. She is extremely intelligent, and sometimes gets into trouble for saying exactly what she thinks.
Lt. Jonathan James Kendrick - Career Marine. Commander of the Windward Wall on the naval base in Guantanamo Bay. Only believes in 4 things: Unit, Corp, God, and Country.
Cpl. Jeffrey Owen Howard - Squad leader at Gitmo. Called as a witness in the trial.
Capt. Matthew Markinson - Career Marine stationed on Guantanamo Bay, under Colonel Jessup. Once worked with Dawson, Downey and Santiago. Solid, conscientious officer, Markinson has trouble with the fact that his C.O. is so much younger than he is. Blames his own weakness for the loss of Santiago.
Capt. Julius Alexander Randolph - Judge for Downey and Dawson's trial.
Lt. Jack Ross - Marine attorney assigned to prosecute Dawson and Downey. No nonsense lawyer similar to Kaffee, he just doesn't have all the rule-breaking in him. Keen political sense. Emotionally uninvested in the case, expects Kaffee to ask for a plea bargain. Sees his job as to save face for the military as much as possible.
Pfc. William T. Santiago - Underachieving Marine that dies from the "Code Red" discipline applied by fellow Marines. Appears only in flashbacks.
Cmdr. (Dr.) Walter Stone - Chief Medical Officer at Gitmo. Testifies at the trial.
Lt. J.G. Sam Weinberg - Defense Team. Kaffee's second chair for the murder trial. Good friend of Daniel Kaffee's. Sam is not as involved in the case as Kaffee or Galloway, but he works on it with them nevertheless. Much more of a straight shooter than Kaffee.
Capt. Isaac Whittaker - Career Navy lawyer. Heads up Navy Legal Department, and while he runs things by the book, he has a bit of an "old boy's club attitude". Kaffee and Sam's boss, Whitaker is in charge of the military lawyers in Washington, D.C. He allows Joanne Galloway to work on the case even though Kaffee was the only lawyer officially assigned to it.
This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.
