Native Gardens

March 10-26

Previews March 8-9

By Karen Zacarías
Directed by Kristin Clippard

Opening March 10, 2023

In this brilliant comedy, cultures, and gardens clash to turn well-intentioned neighbors into feuding enemies. 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 the well-established Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of class, privilege, and entitlement. The riotous results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.

Skillful Comedy…Bright and Witty and Clever.” –

 “A “Woke” DICK VAN DYKE SHOW for the Stage-  “I LOVE LUCY with substance…and hope for today”
