Dan Kapler (as Teddy) and Betsy Kruse Craig (Trish) star in Pear Avenue Theatre’s “House.”

The Pear Avenue Theatre production of two interlocking comedies by Alan Ayckbourn – “House” and “Garden” – are scheduled to run through Oct. 5 in Mountain View. The regional premieres kick off Pear’s 13th season.
