In October 1983 a truck filled with explosives blew up in a Marine barracks in Beirut, killing 242 soldiers. SEMPER FI explores the aftermath of that terrorist attack on the Marine Lieutenant Colonel who was in charge.

"Every once in a while, a script comes along that's so articulate, so well crafted, so free of cliches, you want to cry because they aren't all like that. Michael Brady's SEMPER FI is such a script..."
Mary Shen Barnidge, Chicago Reader

"...Michael Brady's fine new play SEMPER FI ... a drama dealing with a Marine Lt Colonel caught between a rock and a hard place--he was put in charge of the Marine unit in Beirut right before it was bombed by the terrorist truck in 1983. Ironically, he had pleaded for tighter security before this happened, but was refused. Now it appears he'll be the scapegoat. Brady creates characters you'll really care about..."
Mary Ann Nichols, WCRB-FM

"...blind faith is the subject of Michael Brady's drama SEMPER FI, about the October 1983 bombing of the U S Embassy in Beirut... The play is the dramatic equivalent of the truck bomb that destroyed the embassy... The drama explodes with the emotional intensity of the event that took more than two hundred American lives..."
Alicia MacArthur, The Salem Evening News
