Purchase Natives


“This was the summer they all came home. You’ve heard of the movement – the return of the natives, going back to your roots. It’s something like a root canal; only it’s not covered by insurance. “

There’s no such thing as a normal family. Natives is a love story about negotiated acceptance.

Cast: 4 women, 3 men 

“In the play’s often hilarious dialogue, tinged with the harsh bit of reality, one daughter reminds us, ‘ Home is that place where when you go there, they have to take you in.’ In today’s society of overachievers, everybody is determined to keep moving up. Nobody wants a home with roots. Like sharks, we have to keep moving just to stay alive.”
