Performers, Cast and Crew:
Based on Herman Wouk's Pulitzer Prize winning novel of 1951.The Caine is a battle-scarred Navy vessel under the command of Captain Queeg, who rules with an iron fist. But Queeg is a man who suffers from an acute case of insecurity and stress, which causes serious mental problems and faulty leadership that his underlings are beginning to notice. The situation comes to a head during a fierce storm, in which Lt. Steve Maryk relieves Queeg of his duties against Queeg's will in order to save the ship and the men. Undaunted, Queeg charges Maryk with mutiny. Thus begins a dramatic court martial, which strongly affects Queeg's state of mind and his future.
