Playreaders’ Native Gardens, Asks if Good Fences Indeed Make Good Neighbors

NATIVE GARDENS

By Paula Lopuch According to poet Robert Frost, a good fence (or wall) makes for good neighbors. Conversely, does a bad fence (or wall) break down relations between neighbors? This timely question is one that Karen Zacharias’s witty contemporary comic play Native Gardens aims to answer. In a fashionable neighborhood in Washington DC, the Del [...]

The word “wright” is an archaic English term for craftsman (like a shipwright or cartwright). Despite its scornful beginnings, the word remains, probably because Jonson, who considered himself a poet, failed [...]
