Wall, a new play by Jake Shore, directed by Timothy Haskell.
Amir is the most famous graffiti artist in the world, but to stay out of jail, he must remain anonymous. His protégé, Rae, has great talent and is progressing, inching ever closer to tagging the perfect wall with her graffiti. Despite this, when the student threatens the teacher, things turn dire. Amir's sanity wanes. He begins wondering whether he's the central character in a play. Will Rae follow?
