Comedy by Karen Zacarias
Director Alisa DeMers Bousa
Assistant Director Michele Beeler

Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious comedy of good intentions and bad manners. Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing 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.

Cast List:
Tania: Shelby Bergeson
Pablo: Andrew Yaeger
Virginia: Keri Muntefering
Frank: Bill Bossman
Landscapers: Chad Muntefering and Angel Nunez-Ceron
Surveyor/Building Examiner: LaTrisha Schindler
