Native Gardens

November 10th, 2018

In this brilliant, contemporary hot-button
comedy, cultures and gardens clash, turning
well-intentioned neighbors into feuding
enemies. Pablo, a rising attorney, and doctoral
candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, have
just purchased a home next to Frank and
Virginia, a well-established D.C. couple with a
prize-worthy English garden. But an impending
barbeque for Pablo’s colleagues and a delicate
disagreement over a long-standing fence line
soon spirals into an all-out border dispute,
exposing both couples’ notions of race, taste,
class and privilege.
