A cast of six Minnesota West Community and Technical College students brings to life the contemporary comedy “Native Gardens” at the Minnesota West Fine Arts Theater.
In performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday (with a 6:30 p.m. dinner theater option on Friday) and 2 p.m. Sunday, audiences will be drawn into the 90-minute play.
Written by Karen Zacarias and performed at the Guthrie Theater in 2017, “Native Gardens” explores the frequently comic implications of an educated, expectant and liberal-minded young couple moving in next door to a button-downed older twosome with a more static outlook.
“The older pair has a very well-kept English garden, but the younger two want to put in a native garden — hence the title — and the style difference in how the two families perceive their yards sets up a humorous clash between them that addresses class, privilege, entitlement and taste,” summarized Eric E. Parrish, the show’s director.
“Native Gardens” by Karen Zacarias will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Fine Arts Theater of the Minnesota West Community and Technical College Worthington campus. Tickets are available at the door a half hour prior to each performance. A catered meal (with the partnership of the Minnesota West Foundation) is available at 6:30 p.m. Friday; call 507-372-3448 for reservations.
