The Canadian premiere of a powerful, politically charged drama that couldn’t be more timely, by one of America’s top playwrights. It’s 2019, and the Trump administration has carried out its campaign promise to round up and detain millions of illegal immigrants. Now, a history professor interviews a prison warden awaiting sentencing for carrying out the federal policy that has escalated into the unimaginable. Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan’s Building the Wall is a terrifying and gripping exploration of the nature of complicity, and of what happens if we let fear win.

Directed by Sean Devine and starring Brad Long and Cassandre Mentor. This provocative and in-demand new play is getting multiple productions across the US, including an Off-Broadway New York City premiere in May!

“Building the Wall should be seen and shuddered over.” –LA Times

“It simmers with of-the-moment urgency, and logically illustrates, step by step, how fascism can gradually take root.” –Hollywood Reporter
