Native Gardens, a dazzling, light-hearted comedy staged to resonate with teens and young adults, is set to hit Aurora Theatre’s mainstage from May 2 – June 2! Based in a historic Washington D.C. neighborhood, two couples who live next to each other battle for their backyards – each wanting a landscape completely different from the other. This comedic confection is one of the top ten most produced plays in the country, sure to have audiences laughing all the way home!
The laugh-out-loud story tells the tale of The Butleys, a middle-aged white couple who spend most of their time perfecting their garden in hopes to relieve stress and win an award from the Potomac Horticultural Society. Next door the Del Valles, a Latinx couple in their early 30s expecting their first child, move in and want to create a native garden in their backyard. A desired fence remodel by the Del Valles sparks controversy over a mismarked property line that threatens to destroy Mr. Butley’s perfectly manicured competition garden. In this dazzling comedy, a war of taste, class and entitlement just might push these two couples over the hedge!
