Gardens and cultures clash in this thought-provoking comedy.
Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and his wife Tania, a doctoral candidate, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house in a historic D.C. neighborhood. The couple has big plans for their new home, including a “native garden” made of indigenous plants. Their new neighbors are Frank and Virginia, an elderly white couple who welcome them with open arms. When Tania and Pablo set to work on building a fence, they discover that their property line is two feet into Frank’s manicured English garden. The polite veneer breaks down into an all-out border dispute exposing both couples’ notions of taste, race, class, and privilege.
“Beyond snappy one-liners and garden hose fights, the play challenges audiences to look beyond petty differences and rediscover our shared decency.”
