In My Granny's Garden

Alliance Theatre Anywhere

Directed by Rosemary Newcott

Inspired by Pearl Cleage and Zaron Burnett Jr.’s children’s book of the same name, In My Granny’s Garden invites our youngest audiences to explore the glory of growing your own food. Watch a tiny seed become a field of corn, green beans, collard greens, and bright red tomatoes. Step into a visual feast inspired by world renowned artist Radcliffe Bailey’s original paintings, and discover the one superpower that fuels Granny’s garden. This streaming play promises to leave you nourished in body and soul.  

Recommended for children 0-5 and their grown-ups.
