The Academy of Music is proud to present the East Coast premiere of Building the Wall, the newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award – winning playwright Robert Schenkkan. It’s the very near future, and the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promises to round up and detain millions of immigrants. Now, a writer interviews the supervisor of a private prison as he awaits sentencing for carrying out the federal policy that has escalated into the unimaginable. This riveting, harrowing and illuminating drama delivers a powerful warning and puts a human face on the inhuman, revealing when personal accountability is denied, what seems inconceivable becomes inevitable. Directed by Sheila Siragusa.

“Terrifyingly plausible dystopian fiction. ‘Building the Wall’ imagines the unimaginable. It should be seen!” – LA Times

Nightly seating for this production is limited. Performance and seating will be on the stage for an intimate experience.
