    TICKETS


    “Native Gardens” opens next week at the Playhouse. Local actors Marjorie Burren (“The Outgoing Tide,” “God on the Couch”) and  Rodrigo Demian (“The Fantastiks”), join 2  actors from California. It’s about a Latino couple who moves into an affluent neighborhood in DC, next door to an upper middle class white couple.Tensions ensue. Both funny and timely.

    A border dispute arises out of the need for a barbecue. In Native Gardens, Karen Zacarias has created a hilarious, warm-hearted, and fresh comedy about culture, fences, and hydrangeas. Tania and Pablo Del Valle are a smart, likeable younger couple. Frank and Virginia Butley are a smart, likeable older couple. They get along beautifully, until Frank’s flower bed is threatened. But they’re all reasonable people, so surely a compromise can be found, right?

    Karen Zacarías is one of the most produced playwrights in the nation. She is one of the inaugural Resident Playwrights at Arena Stage in Washington, DC, and is a core founder of the LATINX THEATRE COMMONS. She is the founder of Young Playwrights’ Theater, an award winning theater company that teaches playwriting in local public schools in Washington, DC. Karen lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband and three children. http://www.karenzacarias.com/ She was born in Mexico.

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