A Broadway hit, “Everything in the Garden” is a brilliant, biting play blending humor, irony and suspense in a scathing examination of moral corruption and greed in suburbia.

The curtain rises 7:30 p.m. on weekdays; Saturdays and Sundays are matinees at 4 p.m. There is no show on the Monday after opening night.

Tickets, 300 pesos, available at lakesidelittletheatre.com, and the LLT box office, 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the week before and the week of the show, as well as one hour before curtain for each show.
