There are three ways of telling the "Caine Mutiny" story. The first one I came across was the Bogart film, in which Bogie played a harsh obsessive Captain Queeg, beset by the disloyalty and lack of discipline found in his wardroom, as well as being hampered by some rather anal-retentive fixations in his own personality. Until a typhoon triggered a panic and mutiny among those officers, including his talented "exec". This resulted in a court martial of that exec, whose JAG trial counsel spotted the fact that he had been manipulated into the mutiny by a disgruntled intellectual snob who'd been third-in-command. That put the trial counsel in the dilemma of having to get the exec acquitted even though the JAG lawyer felt that his client had been in the wrong. It's really strange, because stories of "unswerving loyalty" in men serving during World War II had been part of my upbringing. So the attitudes and behavior of Queeg's officers sounded more like something out of the Nam Era to me. Something my own generation would do during war.

Then I read the Herman Wouk novel, which the author himself said in the introduction had been based on this play. The novel takes emphasis off Queeg as hero, instead making it a coming-of-age story featuring a junior officer who was the spoiled son of a doctor and his socialite wife. In that story, we see a pampered rich kid of no particular talent (other than as an amateur cabaret musician) get molded by the war into a competent naval officer. Despite his own mama's boy immaturity, and despite some negative influences among his fellow officers.

But I hadn't been able to find this play--centered entirely on the mutiny trial and the foundation of the whole "Caine" saga--anywhere. The best I'd been able to do was a made-for-TV "event" of this play during the 1990s. Now I can finally read the thing and hope somebody releases the TV play on DVD.

One of his best books and to this day, one of my favorite movies staring Humphrey Bogart!

Great to read this, but potential buyers need to recognize that this is an adaption that was used to field a play. It is not actually the book. That said, it was a relatively quick and fun read, especially if you'd read the book at some time.

This is an excellent play - an American classic. I purchased it to help one of my students with a college audition.

I got this for my husband (he has a copy of the Herman Wulk novel). He had known this was done on stage.

I thought I was ordering the novel - don't particularly like reading plays. Not my cup of tea. But I will try reading it.

As an ardent fan of books, theatre and movies it never ceases to amaze me how the exact same story can play out so differently in each of these media.

Take Phantom of the Opera for example. As a book, a play and a movie, there's something about the Phantom story that powerfully endures (albeit in different ways) in each of the media.

Yet there are some stories uniquely known for their appearance in book form, as a stage play or alternatively as a movie.

Though Caine Mutiny rightly won Wouk a Pulitzer, history nonetheless still seems to record the movie (starring a more mature and gutsy Humphrey Bogart in the title role) as the definitive telling of this story.

For those who've had the pleasure of either the Pulitzer prize winning book or the equally estimable movie, I would heartily recommend this play...also written by Wouk.

As stage plays necessarily must, it reduces the story to its dramatic bare bones and I think in so doing elevates the theatrical version of this story over its cinematic and novelistic brethren.

If nothing else the play is an interesting precis on just what Wouk considered to be indispensible in this story.

I highly recommend it, in fact even over both the book and movie, which in this case is really saying something.
Powerful, short, dramatic reading of a classic play performed in 2006. Exceptionally well done.
