Robert Schenkkan’s BUILDING THE WALL is a powerful, politically charged drama that couldn’t be more timely.

It’s the very near future, and the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. Now, a history professor interviews the supervisor of a private prison as he awaits sentencing for carrying out the federal policy that has escalated into the unimaginable. BUILDING THE WALL is a terrifying and gripping exploration of the nature of complicity, and of what happens if we let fear win.

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre is proud to produce the Canadian premiere of this devastating new play by Pulitzer Prize winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Schenkkan. Written in a red-hot fury during the final weeks of the Trump campaign, BUILDING THE WALL has already receiving numerous critically-acclaimed productions across America.

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

“Sure to provoke shock, awe and much talk.”
Variety – New York

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