Building the Wall

TAMPA REPERTORY THEATRE & CREATIVE LOAFING PRESENT

CONVERSATION STARTERS

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.
