SAN DIEGO -- Should the border wall come down? That's the question underlying "Nuevo California," a new fable of the future presented by the San Diego Repertory Theater. The question, however, is obscured in a rickety plot about the shooting of a pope. It's 2028, five years after a devastating Southern California earthquake.
