About the Show

A Contemporary Hot-Button Comedy

Pablo, a rising attorney, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, purchase a fixer-upper next to Frank and Virginia, a well-established D.C. couple with their cherished backyard English garden. All seems neighborly until it’s discovered that Pablo and Tania’s property line runs right thru Frank’s prize-winning flower beds—right where Pablo and Tania plan a new fence. A simple property line dispute soon spirals into an all-out “border war”, exposing both couples’ notions of race, taste, class and privilege.
