Building the Wall

by Robert Schenkkan

On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. 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.

And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be, in this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull.
