Trinity Repertory's Native Gardens Begins Performances
Christie Vela directs the comedy from Karen Zacarías.
Performances of Native Gardens begin tonight at Trinity Repertory Company.
Christie Vela directs Karen Zacarías's comedy, which is described as follows: "Pablo and Tania are new to the neighborhood. Virginia and Frank have been fixtures in the area for decades. They all agree that the chain link fence separating their yards has got to go! A quick replacement with a stately wooden fence will arrive just in time to impress both Pablo's bosses and the judges viewing Frank's elaborate English garden. Everyone starts off on the right foot, but when the truth about the real location of the property line is revealed and Tania's vision of native plants and wild flowers doesn't align with Frank's pesticide-dependent masterpiece, a sparkling comedy of good intentions and bad manners blooms."
Featured in the cast are Timothy Crowe (Frank) and Anne Scurria (Virginia), María Gabriela Rosado González (Tania), Daniel Duque-Estrada (Pablo). The creative team includes Dahlia Al-Habieli (set design), Peter Johnson (costume design), Aaron Johansen (lighting design), and John Flores (sound design).
Opening night is set for April 9, and performances run through May 6.
