It’s 2013, Obama has just been re-elected, and the Republican Party finally realizes it has a problem with race. In an attempt to win the 2016 presidential election, the GOP backs a candidate who is a mixture of every race on earth. A wild and surreal comedy that skewers all political
parties to the point it becomes unclear what is satire — and what is today’s frightening reality.

In Paul Zindel's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, we find an unfulfilled single mother raising two teenage daughters. When her younger daughter, Tillie, enters a science fair with atomic marigolds, we hope the family can overcome the "toxic world" around them — and
not get crushed beneath it.
