Sonja Parks tells the story of the founding and first year of a community garden in a gritty, immigrant neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio.
From an 8-year-old Vietnamese girl, to a geriatric Eastern European busybody, Parks uses speech, posture and gestures to migrate between characters, who collectively describe the transformation of the empty lot into a vibrant garden. While doing so, each experiences his or her own transformation.
A Children's Theatre Company of Minneapolis production based on the popular children's novel by Paul Fleischman, directed by Peter C. Brosius.
