Based on the book by Newbery Medal-winning author Paul Fleishman, Seedfolks is about an immigrant neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio that is transformed by a community garden. Nine-year-old Kim plants six lima bean seeds in the vacant lot next to her apartment building to honor the father she never knew. Slowly, each member of the community finds a reason to plant their own seeds, resurrecting a derelict lot and uniting a fractured neighborhood. Actress Sonja Parks embodies the 11 distinct voices of Gibb Street in this enthralling one-woman production.
