7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 4 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. Through March 29. Portland Stage, 25A Forest Ave., Portland, $40 to $65. portlandstage.org
“Native Gardens” is a new comedy by Karen Zacarias, and themes of race, taste, class and privilege sprout like weeds, as do the laughs. The story is about an up-and-coming Chilean attorney, his expecting American wife and what happens when they move next door to a snooty couple and their prized English garden in Washington, D.C. For theater fans on a budget, pay-what-you can shows are this Thursday night, and at 2 p.m. on March 19.
