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

28th November – 5th December 1987

Frowsy, acid-tongued Beatrice Hunsdorfer, supporting herself and her two daughters by taking in a decrepit old boarder, wreaks a petty vengeance on everybody about her. One daughter’s gamma ray experiment with marigolds wins a school prize — and brings on the shattering climax of the play.

The play’s timeless lesson is that something beautiful and full of promise can emerge from even the most barren soil.

Part of the Barn’s 1987-1988 Season.
