From Pulitzer and Tony® winner Robert Schenkkan (All The Way, Hacksaw Ridge – Academy Award® nomination), comes a provocative 80-minute theatrical event written in a white-hot fury. In a time when shocking campaign rhetoric turns into real policies, Building the Wall urgently reveals the power of theater to question who we are and where we might be going. Don’t miss the show The Hollywood Reporter calls, “A mesmerizing and shocking new play that simmers with of-the-moment urgency.”
