Synopsis

In January, one week before the President's inauguration a fierce fight erupted in the Senate between Republicans and Democrats over the confirmation of the key figures for President Trump's cabinet. These four powerful men lead the Trump administration's policy on Russia, the Middle East, Iran and North Korea, on human rights worldwide, on the Paris Climate control agreement, as well as on the civil rights and the health of millions of Americans. They are: Rex Tillerson, the former CEO of Exxon/Mobil, nominee for Secretary of State responsible for America's foreign policy; 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 sceptic nominated as Director of the Environmental Protection Agency. In front of four separate Senate committees the nominees were subjected to tough and relentless cross-examination. They were questioned forensically about their ethics, beliefs and political philosophies. Each of them had to fend off accusations ranging from corruption to deceit or racism.

These gripping and dramatic verbatim Senate sessions probed their fitness for office, and give us a vital insight into the future policies and direction of a Trump Presidency.

Nicolas Kent was Artistic Director of the Tricycle Theatre, London, from 1984 to 2012. He is known for his political pieces at the Tricycle, where the verbatim plays he directed became known as the Tricycle Tribunal plays. Among them: Half the Picture, The Colour of Justice, Nuremberg, Srebrenica and the Olivier Award-winning: Bloody Sunday were all broadcast by the BBC. Two of them were also performed in the Houses of Parliament and on Capitol Hill. He has produced & directed in London's West End, The Royal Court, The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Young Vic, Hampstead Theatre and the Donmar Warehouse as well as numerous plays on BBC television and radio.
