Building the Wall


Tuesday, December 5, 2017 to Sunday, December 24, 2017

This event has expired.

Play synopsis:

On Jan. 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Over the next 16 months, events would unravel that test every American’s strength of character: executive actions, an immigration round-up of unprecedented scale, and a declaration of martial law. Rick finds himself caught up as the frontman of the new administration’s edicts and loses his humanity. In a play that recalls George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and the Nazi regime, Building the Wall is a terrifying and gripping exploration of what happens if we let fear win.

ASL-interpreted performances on Dec. 16 and 18.
