Native Gardens

By  Karen Zacarías Directed by Patrick Torres

A comedy that's anything but neighborly.

Good fences don’t always make good neighbors, but they do make for great comedy! An attorney on the rise and his very pregnant wife couldn’t feel more welcomed by their new neighbors. But soon, a friendly disagreement about the lay of the land quickly spirals into a war of taste, class, and entitlement.
