Inspired by the children’s book by acclaimed playwright and New York Times bestselling author Pearl Cleage and her husband, writer, and director Zaron W. Burnett Jr., In My Granny’s Garden invites the 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. The play promises to leave the very young nourished in body and soul. In My Granny's Garden was commissioned by the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.
In My Granny’s Garden is recommended for children 0-8 and their grown-ups. Performance run time is approximately 40 minutes, with optional post-performance activities.
