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.
This annual performance showcases MYSO’s acclaimed flagship orchestra, the Senior Symphony, and will feature pianist Elena Abend as guest soloist. Program includes selections from Holst’s The Planets and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
