NATIVE GARDENS brightens the summer theater season!
"Zacarías' writing makes for crisp, intelligent observations..."
"...the audience, who seemed to range in age and ethnicity like that of the characters, found ourselves freely laughing at touchy issues proposed on both sides of the fence."

"These four actors bring these people to life without a drop of excess theatricality."
"Humor may just be that healing salve that allows us to see and laugh at ourselves..."
"[NATIVE GARDENS] favors the humanity in us all when it comes to cherishing life."

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Dealing with neighbors can be thorny, especially for Pablo and Tania, a young Latino couple who have just moved into a well-established DC neighborhood. Though Frank and Virginia have the best intentions for making the new couple feel welcome next door, their newly budding friendship is tested when they realize their shared property line isn't where it's supposed to be. Frank is afraid of losing his prized garden, Pablo wants what is legally his, Tania has a pregnancy and a thesis she'd rather be worrying about, and Virginia just wants some peace. But until they address the real roots of their problems, it's all-out war in this hilarious and heartfelt play about the lines that divide us and those that connect us.
