City Theatre has announced its fourth production for the 2022/2023 season: Karen Zacarías’s ‘Native Gardens,’ directed by Marc Masterson, running from March 11 to April 2 on the City Theatre Main Stage.

“We’re thrilled to bring Karen Zacarías’s play to our stage,” said Director Marc Masterson. “We’re celebrating spring with this delightful home-grown cast in a warm and breezy comedy.”

First commissioned and premiered at Cincinnati Playhouse, ‘Native Gardens’ has delighted audiences nationwide, landing on American Theatre’s Top 10 Most Produced Plays list for the 2018-19 season. A 90-minute comedy, ‘Native Gardens’ is set in a historic D.C. neighborhood, where a property line discrepancy escalates into an all-out border dispute.

‘Native Gardens’ is directed by Marc Masterson and features performers: Evelyn Hernandez (Tania), Laurie Klatscher (Virginia), Juan Rivera Lebron (Pablo), and Cotter Smith (Frank), with scenic design by Tony Ferrieri, lighting by Paul Whitaker, costumes by Madison Michalko, and sound by Daniel Ocanto. Patti Kelly will serve as the production stage manager, and Ricardo Vila-Roger will serve as the artistic consultant.

For the production, City Theatre will collaborate with Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. A special preview of ‘Native Gardens’ will take place at Phipps Conservatory on Wednesday, March 1, at 6 p.m. Tickets include admission to Phipps’ Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show: Origin Stories, a sneak peek of ‘Native Gardens,’ live music by Hugo Cruz and Frank DiDiano, and a Q&A session.
