World Premiere of Building the Wall — The newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan(The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way, Hacksaw Ridge), directed by award-winning Michael Michetti. It’s the very near future, and the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. Now, a writer interviews the supervisor of a private prison as he awaits sentencing for carrying out the federal policy that has escalated into the unimaginable. This riveting, harrowing and illuminating drama delivers a powerful warning and puts a human face on the inhuman, revealing how when personal accountability is denied, what seems inconceivable becomes inevitable.
Building the Wall is produced at The Fountain Theatre as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are Borderlands Theatre (AZ), City Theatre (FL), Curious Theatre (CO), and Forum Theatre (DC), with support from Paul Prokop. For more information please visit nnpn.org.
