AMIGOS DEL REP READING SERIES
2017 SPRING SEASON – UP NEXT

 

 
NATIVE GARDENS
Written by Karen Zacarías
Directed by Patrice Amon
Monday, March 13 at 7 pm
Lyceum Space
 
In anticipation of the upcoming San Diego REP production of Karen Zacarías’ Into the Beautiful North, originally presented as an Amigos Reading, we again spotlight her work with Native Gardens, another of her new plays. Clashes between gardens and cultures turn friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this funny world premiere. High-powered lawyer Pablo and his very pregnant wife Tania, a doctoral candidate, realize the American dream when they purchase a new home, next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But disagreement over a longstanding fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, privilege and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.
 

Karen Zacarías (Playwright) has written award-winning plays including TheBook Club Play, Legacy of Light, Mariela in the Desert, The Sins of Sor Juana, the adaptations of Just Like Us and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accent and many more. The 2016 season will see world premieres of her plays Destiny of Desire at Arena Stage, Native Gardens at CincinnatiPlayhouse in the Park; Oliverio: A Brazilian Twist at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Ella Enchanted: The Musical at First Stage. She is one of the inaugural resident playwrights at Arena Stage and is a core founder of the Latino Theatre Commons. She is the founder of Young Playwrights’ Theater, an awardwinning theater company that teaches playwriting in local public schools in Washington, D.C. Zacarías lives in D.C. with her husband and three children.
