January 29, 2020: The Windham Theatre Guild welcomes in 2020 with its next Main Stage production of the season…Native Gardens by Karen Zarcarías, opening Friday, February 7th at the Burton Leavitt Theatre in Willimantic. When arm-chair gardeners are spending these mid-winter months dreaming of planting season, Native Gardens is the perfect reason to venture out for a night at the theatre. 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. Tina Huey returns to Director her second Main Stage show for WTG. Tina hopes you enjoy this light-hearted look at the lines that we draw and the everyday challenges of finding common ground. Do good fences make good neighbors? Native Gardens runs February 7, 8, 14, 15, 20, 21, & 22 at 7:30pm and Sunday Matinee on February 16 at 2:00pm at the Burton Leavitt Theatre, 779 Main Street, Willimantic.
