SYNOPSIS:

 

It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble. But, when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion. Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair and a genuine and charming soul, Dogfight is a perfect way to show off your strong male talent and a unique opportunity for theatres looking to challenge and inspire their audiences.
