BREAKDOWN
**The roles of Virgina Butley and Frank Butley have been pre-cast, all other roles are available**
Seeking:
Tania Del Valle
29 year old, Latina (from New Mexico), a pregnant doctoral candidate who is determined to fix up her fixer-upper with a native garden. Bright, energetic, naturally optimistic, wants to co-exist with the neighbors but she is fiercely protective of her ideas and values.

Pablo Del Valle
31 year old, Latino (he is, in fact, Chilean), an ambitious and successful attorney trying to make partner by “fitting in” and hosting a BBQ for the entire firm in his unkempt backyard. Smart, argumentative, generally tolerant and willing to overlook a lot until he is pushed over the edge by the Butleys.
Virginia Butley
ROLE CAST. 55-65 year old, White (from Buffalo), the bread-winner and only female executive working for a large defense contractor in the DC area. Friendly, civil, smiles a lot, but her opinions are well engrained and she will fight ruthlessly to protect her turf. Prone to making offensive statements -- for the most part, unknowingly.
Frank Butley
ROLE CAST. 55-65 year old, White (from New England), a gentle and sensitive soul who has devoted himself to his pristine English garden in his retirement. Beta to his wife’s Alpha. Friendly in a steady WASP-ish way, wants to get along with the neighbors but cannot embrace a native garden next door. Becomes indignant easily. Finds his courage when the chips are down.
