A Children’s Theatre Company Original Production
A vacant lot in a broken neighborhood in the middle of Cleveland can become a lot of things. A garbage dump. A gathering spot for trouble. How could it ever be a source of hope?
In this stunningly-captured digital production of the play that The New York Times terms “a tour de force,” acclaimed actor Sonja Parks plays 11 different characters, including Ana, the nosey neighbor; Curtis, the weightlifter; and Kim, a young girl who plants six very special lima beans.
As the garden grows, so does the community, blooming into something bigger, better, and beyond all expectations. Don’t miss this groundbreaking show that toured across Minnesota, the United States, and in Cape Town, South Africa!
Adapted from the book by Paul Fleischman
Directed for the stage by Peter C. Brosius
Filmed by TPT in October 2014
