Building The Wall, Park Theatre
America, 2019. A President impeached. In a world of ‘fake news’ can anyone admit the truth?
2019, America. Rick is incarcerated awaiting sentencing for the crime of the century. He grants just one interview – to Gloria, an African American historian. In a world of ‘fake news’ surrounding one of the world’s most powerful and controversial political figures, Gloria is Rick’s only chance to tell his version of the truth.
Building the Wall examines what happens when an ordinary person becomes a cog in a regime and how the inconceivable becomes the inevitable.
Angela Griffin (Lewis, Brief Encounters, Ordinary Lies) plays Gloria, Trevor White (The Durrells, Dark Knight Rises, Jason Bourne films) plays Rick.
The UK premiere of this cutting and timely new drama is as hot as the US political debate that fills our news feeds. Don’t miss this gripping political thriller from Robert Schenkkan, a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright and Academy award nominee (Hacksaw Ridge).
