A compelling and chilling play! The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds is a 1964 play written by Paul Zindel, a playwright and science teacher. A portrait of family dysfunction featuring Beatrice Hunsdorfer, a slovenly single mother, and her two teenage daughters, beautiful but troubled Ruth and gifted but shy Matilda. When “Tillie” embarks on a science project focused on radioactive seedlings, the family members are driven to extremes. The story’s shocking climax and poignant conclusion earned Zindel the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
