David Warren directs the production on the Julianne Argyros Stage. Opening night is March 12. According to SCR notes, "In a Garden centers around the relationship between architect Andrew Hackett and Fawaz Othman, the Minister of Culture for the fictional country of Aqaat. Othman hires Hackett to build a summerhouse in Othman's garden, but he seems more interested in debating politics, culture and movies than in finalizing architectural plans. As the years go by, allegiances shift and the men find themselves caught up in history and warfare."
