DRAMA |  One of Off-Broadway’s greatest successes, this powerful and moving study of a widow and her two young daughters has been hailed as one of the most significant and affecting plays of our time. As young Tillie’s science experiment proves, something beautiful and full of promise can emerge from even the most barren, afflicted soil.

REVIEWS .
Although written almost fifty years ago, the drama remains relevant, and ABET’s production is haunting and intriguing.. Beatrice, the mother.. is portrayed with devastating intensity by St. Augustine actress Jessica Ferris.. Mara Grigg.. is superb as the shy dignified young lady who is enamored with science.. Stephanie Santiago gives an outstanding performance..’Gamma Rays’ is a classic story that you won’t soon forget. | READ FULL ARTICLE
