“’Native Gardens’ is a comedy planted in difficult, painful issues.” – The Chicago Tribune

About the Play

Good fences make good neighbors…right?

Pablo and Tania, an ambitious young couple expecting their first child, have just moved next door to community stalwarts Frank and Virginia and their prize-worthy English garden. What begins as a friendly civil dispute over a fence line erupts into a no-holds-barred turf war where cultures, classes, and tastes hilariously clash. Nobody comes out smelling like a rose in this brilliant, smash-hit comedy of bad manners.

Mayhem and chaos quickly arise in this hilarious, swashbuckling farce. Set in the mid-1700’s, masterful swordsplay and mistaken identities collide with conniving suitors and young maidens to bring to life this action-packed, rollicking spoof of 18th century nobility.
