“We want to represent a multi-racial canvas for which theatre works, new and old, can be interpreted.”

Merciless matriarch, Beatrice and her daughters, Tillie and Ruth live in undesirable conditions, and as Beatrice tries to come up with a quick scheme to bring in more money, she is haunted by her past failures. Tillie is invited to compete in her school’s science fair, presenting the aforementioned title of the play, thus introducing a small beacon of hope in this family’s future.

"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.

“For me aesthetically, seeing a piece of theatre that is culturally diverse is on many levels much more interesting, more artistically stimulating […] to see something that will provide them with aesthetic pleasure and if it reflects the actual diversity of our urban mosaic in a way that’s amusing, sexy, entertaining, that will definitely draw people in a way we wouldn’t otherwise be able to.”—Chris Gatchalian, Artistic Producer of The Frank Theatre (Vancouver)
