Point Loma Playhouse presents a Different Stages production of the Robert Schenkkan timely drama Building The Wall opening January 19-Feb 4. Presented through special arrangement with The Dramatist Play Service. Directed by Jerry Pilato. Featuring: Joe Paulson and Lucinda Moaney.

The newest play by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan was written in direct response to the immigration policies of the Trump administration and is an urgent call to action. In the very near future, the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. As a writer interviews the former supervisor of a private prison, it becomes clear how federal policy has escalated to a terrifying, seemingly inconceivable, yet inevitable conclusion.
