About this event

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds

by Paul Zindel

Director: Maria Bardakos

Assistant Director: Brendon Harris

July 10 to 25, 2021 (updated season)

Winner of the 1971 Pulitzer Prize, the Obie Award and the New York Critics Circle Award as best American Play of the season, this powerful and moving story of triumph in the face of adversity, set in the style of Tennessee Williams, is one of Off-Broadway’s greatest successes.

It is a biographical play of the writer’s dysfunctional family and the pain and loneliness suffered as a child growing up in a home with a narcissistic mother, a rebellious and manipulative sister and the absence of a loving father.

Yet, even though the play presents a bleak situation, it also offers hope in the character of Tillie (Matilda) who, despite her mother’s cruelty, refuses to be defeated. Tillie embodies the spirit of the survivor. Tillie is an awkward outcast at school, yet she is able to appreciate what life has to offer because she has discovered something more important than external appearances, something more lasting. She has discovered that she is important.

Running time: Approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes including a 20 minute interval.
