WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Responding to current events almost as they happen, this revealing new work takes audiences into the fierce fight between Senate Republicans and Democrats over the key cabinet members who will shape the Trump administration's policy on everything from Russia to civil rights, healthcare to climate change. Riveting documentary theater, All the President's Men? Scenes From the Senate Confirmation Hearings of President Trump's Cabinet is composed of verbatim testimony from the nomination hearings of the most powerful of these cabinet appointees: Rex Tillerson, the former CEO of Exxon Mobil, who was nominated for Secretary of State; Jeff Sessions, a leading campaigner for the president and now his chief law officer; Dr. Tom Price, a strident critic of Obamacare and nominee for Health Secretary; and Scott Pruitt, a climate change skeptic nominated as Director of the Environmental Protection Agency. Subjected to tough and relentless cross-examination, each man was questioned forensically about his ethics, beliefs, and political philosophies. Each had to fend off accusations ranging from corruption to deceit to racism. What they said — and what they didn't — gives vital insight into the future policies and direction of a Trump presidency as well as America itself.
