The old, converted vegetable shop where Tillie lives is more like a madhouse than a home. Tillie's mother, Beatrice, is bitter and cruel, yet desperate for her daughters' love. Her sister, Ruth, suffers epileptic fits and sneaks cigarettes every chance she gets. In the midst of chaos, Tillie struggles to keep her focus and dreams alive. Tillie, keeper of rabbits, dreamer of atoms, true believer in life, hope, and the effect of gamma rays on man-in-the-moon marigolds. Based on Zindel's own childhood, this is the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that started him on the road to becoming a life-changing, genre-bending YA author. This drama in two acts explores all the love, pain, hope, and bitterness that Zindel would bring to his groundbreaking novels.|
