NATIVE GARDENS
By KAREN ZACHARIAS

Performance Dates
JULY 8, 9, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23

It’s true. You can’t choose your neighbors. In this brilliant comedy, cultures and gardens clash, turning well-intentioned neighbors into feuding enemies. Pablo, a rising attorney, and Tania, his pregnant wife, have purchased a home next to Frank and Virginia, a well-established D.C. couple with a prize-worthy English garden. An impending barbeque and a disagreement over a fence line soon spiral into an all-out border dispute.

TANIA DEL VALLE – (Ethnically Ambiguous / Multiracial, Latino / Hispanic, White ) late 20’s mid 30’s; American, smart, likable, positive, passionate, highly-energized, pregnant Ph.D. candidate and gardener. Her family is Mexican American and she grew up in New Mexico.

PABLO DEL VALLE (Latino / Hispanic, White)  late 20’s mid 30’s; Chilean but educated in the United States; smart, likable, ambitious, savvy young attorney. He is from a wealthy family in Chile and went to boarding school in the US.

VIRGINIA BUTLEY (White / European Descent) – sixty to mid–70’s – A no-nonsense engineer. She is assertive and fiercely protective. White.

FRANK BUTLEY (White / European Descent) 60 to mid–70’s – A caring, gentle, and detail-oriented federal employee and avid gardener. White.

Ensemble Roles: 3-4 non speaking roles that create a vibrant ensemble of land surveyors, contractors, and landscapers. These actors should be strong movers, expressive, and adept at physical comedy. Silent roles in vignettes between scenes that transform the garden. “They are the witnesses and the energetic transformers of both the play and the situation.”

Actors do not need to be the exact ages of the characters, but the ethnicity and race of the characters is important to the story.

CP2 Grand Concourse – Sat Matinee Time Change to 4pm

Due to the presence of the St Patrick’s Day parade in the Village of Wappingers on Saturday afternoon, we will change the curtain time of the matinee from 2pm to 4pm.
