Park Theatre presents the UK premiere of
Building the Wall
Directed by Jez Bond
Production supported by Park Theatre's Producers' Circle
Cast: Angela Griffin and Trevor White
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.
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).
Angela Griffin (Lewis, Brief Encounters, Ordinary Lies) plays Gloria, Trevor White (The Durrells, Dark Knight Rises, Jason Bourne films) plays Rick.
We will also be hosting a special 5th Birthday Gala performance of Building the Wall - click here for more info.
