Sorkin got the inspiration to write his next play, a courtroom drama called A Few Good Men, from a phone conversation with his sister Deborah (who had graduated from Boston University Law School and signed up for a three-year stint with the U. Sorkin took that information and wrote much of his story on cocktail napkins while bartending at the Palace Theatre.
