Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious comedy of good intentions and bad manners.

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. 

Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, privilege, and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.


“A lighthearted comedy with some heavier threads woven through for just the right amount of heft.”
– Broadway World

“A comedy planted in difficult, painful issues.”
– Chicago Tribune

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

“An UTTER DELIGHT. One of the most fun, funniest shows I’ve seen…Do yourself a favor and SEE IT!”
