Native Gardens

About Native Gardens

Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this funny Regional Premiere, written by Karen Zacarías, one of the most prominent Latina playwrights working today. Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a longstanding fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, privilege and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.
