Native Gardens

By Karen Zacarías
Directed by James Vasquez

Saturday, January 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, get their piece of the American dream when they purchase their upscale townhouse. But a disagreement with their next door neighbors Virginia and Frank over a longstanding property line soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, and privilege. The back garden becomes the site of a culture clash and friendly neighbors turn into feuding enemies in Karen Zacarías’s uproarious and topical Native Gardens.
