When was the last time you saw a provocative show that was as hilarious as it was thought-provoking? If you’re still scratching your head, you’ll need to check out Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s newest production, Native Gardens.
Written by Karen Zacarias, Native Gardens sets its action in a friendly neighbor where a young Latinx couple moves in besides an older couple. Everything is going swimmingly until the couples discover that their property line is mis-drawn. And it’s cutting through a prize-winning flowerbed.
The first preview performance for the production is Wednesday, April 17, at 7 p.m. This performance is a “Pay What You Can Night,” sponsored by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Tickets must be purchased at the box office, located at 601 Main St., the day of the performance
