Arsht Center: BUILDING THE WALL by Robert Schenkkan

Written immediately prior to the recent presidential election, BUILDING THE WALL is a hard-hitting new play inspired by angry campaign rhetoric, and threatening promises made law, that leads to a terrifying escalation of horrifying events.

It’s 2019 and the US has suffered another terrorist attack. Declaring martial law, the government has swept up and detained millions of immigrants. Rick is a former supervisor of a private detention facility overwhelmed by detainees and chaos. Found guilty of unspeakable crimes, he now awaits sentencing in federal prison. Gloria is a historian who arrives for an interview, compelled to uncover and write about the truth.

This riveting, harrowing, and illuminating drama delivers a powerful warning, and reveals the human cost, of what happens when America decides to build the wall.

“MEZMERIZING! Simmers with of-the-moment urgency. A cautionary tale, but more importantly, a call to action.” – The Hollywood Reporter
