Native Gardens

A boisterous backyard battle.

May 18 – June 16, 2019
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

“Native Gardens is a true breath of comic fresh air.” —DC Theatre Scene

In this hilarious hot-button comedy, cultures and gardens clash, turning well-intentioned neighbors into feuding enemies. When a questionable fence line puts a prize-worthy garden in jeopardy, neighborly rivalry escalates into an all-out border dispute, challenging everyone’s notions of race, privilege, class, and good taste. From the outrageous mind of playwright Karen Zacarías, whose play Destiny of Desire was a hit at Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Presented by Portland Center Stage at The Armory in association with The Geva Theatre Center and Syracuse Stage.
