“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.
