Arts preview: "Wall's" surrealism and slapstick humor stick

Jesse Tigges, Columbus Alive

MadLab's latest (by J.R. Spaulding Jr.) follows a man and a woman who look to build a wall of "grandiloquent scale and epic importance" to create a symbol Americans can find hope in.

But various issues (limited labor force, time and resources, culminating in a showdown with a one-percent determined to halt the wall's production) arise resulting in bits of surreal, slapstick humor.
