The Old Globe has announced complete casting for Karen Zacarías's Native Gardens, directed by Edward Torres. It runs May 26-June 24.

Native Gardens will star Kimberli Flores (Daredevil) as Tania Del Valle, Peri Gilpin (Frasier) as Virginia Butley, Eddie Martinez as Pablo Del Valle, Mark Pinter as Frank Butley, Jose Balistrieri as Gardener, and Alex Guzman as Gardener.

In the play, young power couple Pablo and Tania get their piece of the American Dream when they purchase an upscale house in a historic neighborhood. But a disagreement with their next-door neighbors Virginia and Frank over the property line that separates their backyards soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, and gardening.

The creative team includes Collette Pollard (scenic design), Jennifer Brawn Gittings (costume design), Amanda Zieve (lighting design), and Mikhail Fiksel (sound design).
