Kentwood Players presents NATIVE GARDENS, a comedy by Karen Zacarias.

In this brilliant new comedy, crops and gardens clash, turning well-meaning neighbors into enemy enemies. Pablo, an aspiring lawyer, and doctoral student Tania, his heavily pregnant wife, have just bought a house in the suburbs of Washington DC that is a bit of a repairman, and Tania, a botanist, is considering transforming the yard with natives. plants. However, their new neighbors Frank and Virginia are a well-established DC couple with an English garden worthy of the name. An impending barbecue for Pablo’s colleagues and a delicate disagreement over a long-standing fence soon turns into a widespread border dispute exposing the two couples’ notions of race, taste, class and privilege.
