Don't miss Native Gardens, Ross Valley Players' final show of the season!
In the suburbs of Washington D.C., a high-powered lawyer named Pablo and his very pregnant, doctoral candidate wife named Tania, have just purchased their dream home. It’s a bit of a fixer-upper, but luckily Tania is a brilliant gardener and plans to transform their outdoor space into a beautiful native garden. Their new next-door neighbor, Frank, is a gardener himself and spends most of his time nurturing his non-native garden to win the annual gardening competition in the neighborhood. Frank and his wife Virginia have lived here for a long time and welcome Pablo and Tania with open arms. However, when Pablo invites his whole law firm over for a BBQ, Tania and Pablo set to work on building a fence and discover that their property line is 2 feet into Frank’s beloved garden. This creates friction between the neighbors and an all-out border dispute erupts. The two couples show their true colors and it is unclear who will win the war. Can such different people from totally different backgrounds find a way to compromise?

Where Did We Sit on the Bus?, Marin Theatre Company's final production of the season, debuts this week.
During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights Movement and Rosa Parks, a Latina child raises her hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” Her teacher can’t answer the question. Performed by a dynamic actor, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and intersectional feminist, and infused with Latin rhythms, hip-hop and live-looping, this solo exploration follows that kid into adulthood. Watch her navigate growing up in an immigrant family, her identity as a first-generation American and what the world might look like for her children. Where Did We Sit on the Bus? is a high-octane, tour-de-force theatrical experience that examines what it means to be Latiné in America.
