Building the Wall



Staged readings of new plays you won’t be able to stop talking about

Building the Wall
by Robert Schenkkan



TampaRep’s next Conversation Starter is Building the Wall — the newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way; he also co-authored the film Hacksaw Ridge). 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 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.

Monday, November 13th, in the CL Space, 1911 N. 13th Street, Tampa.  7:30pm Curtain. Tickets are $10.  There will be a discussion afterward, so please plan to stick around for a bit.

Conversation Starters — a TampaRep tradition continues.
