Photo Flash: First Look at NATIVE GARDENS at Victory Gardens Theater

Victory Gardens Theater closes its 42nd season with the Chicago Premiere of Native Gardens, written by Karen Zacarías and directed by Marti Lyons. Native Gardens runs now through July 2, 2017 at Victory GardensTheater, 2433 N Lincoln Avenue. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Pablo, a high-poweRed Lawyer, and his pregnant wife Tania, a doctoral candidate, think they have hit the jackpot with their new home. It seems to have everything they dreamed of: a nice neighborhood, plenty of bedrooms for their growing family, outdoor space, and friendly neighbors. When Pablo and Tania decide to upgrade the eyesore chain link fence in their backyard, neighbors Virginia and Frank couldn't be happier. Happy until they think their new neighbors are taking more than they deserve. A disagreement over a property line quickly spirals into a war of taste, class, and entitlement in Native Gardens, a hilarious new comedy by Karen Zacarías and directed by Marti Lyons.

The cast of Native Gardens includes Patrick Clear (Frank Butley), Paloma Nozicka (Tania Del Valle), Gabriel Ruiz(Pablo Del Valle) and Janet Ulrich Brooks (Virginia Butley).

The creative team includes William Boles (scenic design), Samantha Jones (costume design), Keith Parham(lighting design) and Mikhail Fiksel (sound design). Isaac Gomez is the dramaturg and Tina Jach is the production stage manager.
