In a mosaic of America, Seedfolks is set in a vacant lot of Cleveland in a neighborhood that has turned over from immigrant whites to migrating blacks to a new batch of immigrants from Asia & Latin America, even as people remain from the earlier waves. The title comes from a young girl who plants seeds in the vacant lot in her father’s memory, an act that animates the disparate residents of the urban community. It is an acting tour-de-force for Ivey Award-winning Sonja Parks, who transforms seamlessly into a dozen characters who surround an 11-year old Asian girl, using accents, gestures and attitude to distinguish her personas in this compelling drama.
