In an abandoned lot in inner-city Cleveland, nine-year-old Kim plants a few lima beans from which astonishing social reform grows. A chain reaction of responses to the fledgling garden in this immigrant neighborhood brings unexpected results. With each person motivated to add to and nurture the garden, the world transforms—crime is thwarted, tolerance, generosity and friendship are spread. Those few small beans develop into a powerful force of change.
Based on the popular book of the same title, this one-woman show will plant wonder in your heart, as a reminder that we’re capable of making the world a better place, and an inspiration to do so.
