Donald Trump’s wall between Mexico and the United States may seem like it is ripped from today’s headlines, but clear back in 1998, playwrights Solano and Havis interviewed over 200 residents of San Diego, Tijuana, and Mexicali asking a simple question, “Would we be better off with or without a wall between the two countries?” The result is this prescient futuristic fantasy. It’s 2028, an earthquake has wiped out L.A. and Orange County. A Mexican-American pope comes to the region to bless the demolition of the border wall inspiring murder; mystery and a budding bicultural romance. Is it possible that this community born fantasy is becoming tomorrow’s reality?
