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.

MASKS & VACCINATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED.
Live theatre means large gatherings of people sitting in close quarters for long periods of time – so we continue to encourage vaccinations and masks, but we will no longer be enforcing these requirements unless the county is listed as “HIGH” on the Washoe County Covid-19 dashboard (found HERE). We want to keep our artists and audience members as safe as we possibly can and thank you for helping us do so. We will update this page and contact patrons with changes to our Covid Safety Measures as they happen.
