    National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

     

    Building the Wall

    written by ROBERT SCHENKKAN
    directed by MICHAEL DOVE

    The National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere of Building the Wall is the newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way), and will be directed by Michael DoveBuilding the Wall imagines a very near future where President Trump’s anti-immigration campaign rhetoric is turned into harrowing reality. Millions of undocumented immigrants are rounded up and detained, overflowing private prisons and incarceration camps. Now, a historian 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 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 FORUM THEATRE as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are FOUNTAIN THEATRE (LOS ANGELES, CA); CURIOUS THEATRE COMPANY (DENVER, CO); BORDERLANDS THEATER (TUCSON, AZ) and CITY THEATRE (MIAMI, FL).
