This heartwarming comedy is set in the suburbs of Washington D.C. Pablo, a high-powered young lawyer, and Tania, his very pregnant, doctoral candidate wife, have just purchased their dream home. It’s a bit of a fixer-upper, but Tania has plans to transform their outdoor space into a beautiful native garden. Their neighbors, Frank and Virginia, have lived in their home for a long time and Frank has been nurturing his backyard garden for years. He hopes to win this year's annual gardening competition coming up soon! However, when Pablo invites his whole law firm over for a BBQ, the gardening wars begin. Can such different couples find a way to compromise? Can you love your neighbor when they’re invading your space?

When a black student disrupts the status quo at her high school by occupying space typically reserved for white students, her community erupts in hate speech, violence and chaos. Inspired by a series of incidents media reporting and social action in Jena Louisiana in 2007, Dominique Morisseau’s play scrutinizes the intrinsic links between justice, bias and identity. Moving, lyrical and bold, "Blood at the Root" probes the complexities of race, individual freedoms and what justice means when biases have been normalized.
