About the Show
While visiting the NYC Tenement Museum, we learned that 40 layers of wallpaper were found on the walls of an old apartment. Each piece had been applied by a new immigrant family in an attempt to make the space their own -- every layer filled with hopes, dreams, and incredible stories of survival. We created Layer the Walls to honor the voices of ordinary people often forgotten in history books. As layers of the set are peeled away, the characters stories of immigration are revealed; reminding us where our country has been so that we can more effectively examine where we are going.

This timely and compelling piece was devised by two women over the course of four years with the support of an all-star, all-female production team. We perform for young people, ages 7-13, and tour to large presenting houses (400-1500 seats) across the country. The show is performed by two actors who are on stage for the full 60 minute piece. The show travels with one stage manager who supervises venue crew during the load in and tech process. We anticipate 18-25 performances in the 2020-2021 season. These tour dates will be confirmed by April 2020. For more about our company, visit: grandpistachio.com
