We’re all made of star dust.

Of atoms that once were stars and planets and moons.

The beautiful and the banal: coexisting through a complex chemical bond.

Tillie loves knowing the underlying scientific structure of the world. It keeps her sane. Free from her turbulent home life in a dilapidated vegetable store. Free from her overbearing mother’s constant need for attention. But could science be a way of gaining her mother’s love? Can a project with irradiated marigold seeds at the school science fair show her mother that Tillie is more than just half a test-tube?

The 1971 Pulitzer Prize winner for drama, Paul Zindel’s tale of crazy relatives, radioactive flora and a passion for science is a dark and dreamy tale of one girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of growing up by escaping into science.

Presented by The Jack Studio’s associate company, OutFox Productions, The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds, discovers what beautiful flora might grow from seemingly rotten remnants when you simply apply the spark of imagination.
