Play What s being bill as the Pre Broadway World Premiere of the play A Time To Kill based on John Grisham s first novel begins May 6 at Arena Stage in Washington D C Adopted for the stage by Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes the 1989 book and the 1996 film and the new play deal with a Vietnam veteran s reaction a horrific crime perpetrated on his daughter and the racially charged aftermath played out in a Mississippi courtroom The Arena Stage production runs through June 19 Here s our brief review of the heavily promoted movie which featured a slew of stars including Samuel L Jackson Sandra Bullock Matthew McConaughey Ashley Judd Kiefer Sutherland Donald Sutherland Kevin Spacey and Patrick McGoohan which appeared in the in print Arts of War column in the September 1996 issue of The Veteran Spoiler alert read no further if you don t want to know details of the crime As all viewers of summertime TV movie trailers know the Hollywood version of John Grisham s first novel A Time to Kill 1989 deals with the racially charged trial of a black man in Mississippi In the novel Grisham makes it plain that the defendant Carl Lee Hailey is a Vietnam veteran Hailey even uses an M 16 to shoot and kill the two evil white men who had brutally raped his 12 year old daughter In the movie written by Akiva Goldsman the word Vietnam is not mentioned and it isn t until well into the trial that we hear of Carl Lee Hailey s service during the war The movie which opened July 24 stayed faithful to Grisham s sympathetic portrait of Carl Lee played supremely well by Samuel L Jackson above right as a family man with a steady job who is driven to act in extreme anguish after the horror that befalls his daughter Despite his one act of violent vigilantism Carl Lee can be put into the positive category in Hollywood s not so hot history of portraying Vietnam vets on the screen On the other hand it s a good bet that the movie s one phrase relating to Carl Lee s military service will not even register with many viewers Posted on May 2nd 2011 in Plays Glory Denied The Opera Back in 2001 newspaper columnist Tom Philpott wrote a compelling book called Glory Denied The Saga of Jim Thompson America s Longest Held Prisoner of War the amazing true story of Col Floyd James Jim Thompson The former Special Forces officer was captured by the Viet Cong in March 1964 and not released until 1973 giving him the dubious honor of being held longer than any other Prisoner of War in U S history Thompson suffered greatly during his nine years of captivity physically and emotionally To add to his troubles while he was being held by the Viet Cong Thompson s wife moved with their four young children into the home of an Army sergeant The Thompsons reunited after his release but their marriage soon dissolved Thompson later suffered a stroke that diminished his mental capabilities In his book Tom Philpott told Jim Thompson s story mainly through the verbatim testimony of his family friends and colleagues Much of Thompson s own contributions came from interviews he gave for another book prior to his stroke The Jim Thompson story intrigued the composer Tom Cipullo who sat down a few years ago and wrote a contemporary opera based on the tale The Chelsea Opera in New York City put on several performances
