From America’s most acclaimed political playwright, Pulitzer and Tony® winner Robert Schenkkan (Academy Award® nom.), comes a provocative theatrical event written in a “white hot fury”.

In a time when shocking campaign rhetoric is turned into real policies, BUILDING THE WALL reveals the power of theatre to question who we are and where we might be going.

It is 2019. Rick, a former prison administrator, now finds HIMSELF imprisoned, awaiting a possible death sentence. Having run a private prison facility in Trump’s America, new immigration laws forced him to accept an overabundant influx of prisoners awaiting deportation.

The pressures in this “for profit” facility, quickly begin to pile up. Rick is on his own to “figure things out”. The situation quickly spins out of control.

Who’s really to blame for what ensued? Gloria, a history professor, is here to interview him, to hear his story and, maybe understand the man behind the headlines.
