Building the Wall, a new play by All the Way Tony winner Robert Schenkkan, will have its New York premiere at New World Stages beginning Friday, May 12. The limited engagement opens May 21 and concludes July 9.

Directed by Ari Edelstein, the production will feature James Badge Dale and Tamara Tunie. Additional information will be announced in the coming months.

The production is described as follows: "From America's greatest political playwright, Pulitzer and Tony winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Schenkkan, comes a provocative 90-minute theatrical event set in the near future and deals with one of the most talked about topics of this past election. In a time when campaign rhetoric turns into real policies, Building the Wall reveals the power of theater to question who we are and where we might be going.
