“The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds”
by Paul Zindel
Winner of the 1971 Pulitzer Prize, the Obie Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award as Best American Play of the season. One of Off-Broadway's greatest successes, this powerful and moving study of an embittered, vindictive widow and her two young daughters has been hailed as one of the most significant and affecting plays of our time. "Let's start with a single, simple word. Power...I don't know of a better (play) of its genre since The Glass Menagerie..." —NY Post. "The play itself is one of the lucky blooms; it survives, and is beautiful." —NY Times. "Off-Broadway has been gifted with a great human drama..." —NY Daily News.
