A Comedy of Good Intentions and Bad Manners

Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious new play. Pablo, a high‐powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank.  But a disagreement over a longstanding fence line soon spirals into an all‐out war of taste, class, privilege, and entitlement.

This production will run with no intermission.

Children under the age of 5 are not allowed in the theater.

Karen Zacarías was included in American Theatre's Top 20* Most Produced Playwrights of 2016-17. For more information about Ms. Zacarías, please visit her website.
