Advice & Consent: A Play in One Act
Book release reception with Yxta Maya Murray & Kathleen Kim
Published by Los Angeles Review of Books

Friday, April 19, 7-9pm

On September 27, 2018, the Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings concerning Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her in the mid-1980s. Advice and Consent is a play by Yxta Maya Murray, formed of interviews, found text, and transcripts, re-arranged, selected, and edited for poetic and provocative effect. The drama is designed as a thought experiment about power, pathos, tragedy, politics, gender, race, and truth. Accompanied by a score composed by law professor and violinist Kathleen Kim, Advice and Consent may be either read or performed.
