Building the Wall

Trustus Theatre in Columbia presents Building the Wall, the newest play by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan, October 6 – 14.  It’s the very near future, and the Trump administration has carried out its campaign promise 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 how when personal accountability is denied, what seems inconceivable becomes inevitable. Tickets $20 – $25.
