Native Gardens is, indeed, a comedy infused with character-based humor that satisfies as a warm summer evening of laughs. But Karen Zacarías’ social satire at GableStage gently weaves in themes about a new generation gap, unintentional racism, pride, ambition, immigration, borders, ageism, classism, competition, obsession and a half-dozen other topics.
Embracing the eloquence of imaginative theatricality, Theatre Lab’s Refuge depicts a deeply moving journey through the immigration crisis viewed not as a political issue, but a complex human one.
