World Premiere

By Lloyd Suh​
Directed by Eric Ting​

Bina’s family grows the finest apples in all of Korea. But when war forces her to flee her home, Bina is alone in the world with just six precious apples to her name. Can these meager possessions help her find her family? Join Bina on her spirited journey that ranges from the heartbreaking to the humorous. Encountering new challenges at every turn, Bina is forced to rely upon her apples and their important legacy as she begins to discover the power of her own resilience. Often mesmerizing, always heartwarming, Bina will discover that she’s not the only one on a difficult quest for a place to call home.  

BINA’S SIX APPLES is a co-production with Children’s Theatre Company.

Audience members will be encouraged to wear masks while in the Coca-Cola Stage. Learn more about our COVID Safety Policies.
