Native Gardens

Written by Karen Zacarias 

Directed by Jenny Hollingworth

The Sonoma County Premiere 

Good fences make good neighbors – but only when everyone agrees on where to put them.

Long-time residents Virginia and Frank are happy to welcome the young couple moving into the house next door. Pablo and his pregnant wife Tania are excited to meet their new neighbors. Everything is going smoothly until Pablo offers to replace the garden fence - and everyone’s best intentions quickly fly out the window.


In a revealing clash of cultures and expectations, this hilarious comedy examines what it means to be a good neighbor, and what it means to be a good American.
