About the Show

Adapted from the book by Paul Fleischman
Filmed by TPT in October 2014

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.
