The Omaha Community Playhouse has done it again!  Native Gardens is a hilarious turf war between neighbors, generations, and ethnicities.  When Pablo and Tania purchase a new home in a well-to-do white neighborhood, the couple next door initially offer a friendly welcome.  But when a laughable property line disagreement dissolves into an all-out turf war, the dirt begins to fly.  Packed with witty quips—and plenty of back-and-forth mudslinging—Native Gardens is a side-splitting reminder that, despite our differences, we all share a much larger common ground.

Director Ablan Roblin stops by the KIOS studios to chat with Mike Hogan about the show and how important it is to laugh at ourselves while we navigate through the important role of "neighbor."

The show opens on February 14th and runs through March 15th.
