Pablo & Tania Del Valle are a young, ambitious couple awaiting the arrival of their first child. They've just purchased a home next to Frank and Virginia Butley, 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 spiral into an all-out border dispute, exposing both couples’ notions of race, taste, class, and privilege. Critic Chris Jones with the Chicago Tribune says “[it’s] one of the very few contemporary comedies about racism, sexism, ageism and cultural privilege.” Click here to download the NATIVE GARDENS Play Guide.
