Age of ‘Consent’

With less than a month of election coverage to go, Riverwalk Theatre is doing its part, bringing a slice of political drama to the stage.

Set during the Cold War, “Advise & Consent” unfolds as the president nominates a new secretary of state with a questionable political background. The choice sends the Senate into turmoil as they decide if he is the best man for the job.

Published in 1959, the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Allen Drury was adapted into a play by Lori Mandel in 1960 and into a movie in 1962.
