Overview

From Pulitzer Prize-winning author Paul Zindel comes this touching, humorous, and delightful play that earned wide recognition in its 1969 National Educational Television and 1990 A&E productions.

The action is set in the laboratory of the American Biological Association Development for the Advancement of Brain Analysis, where curious experiments involving various mammals are taking place. Helen, a newly engaged cleaning lady, is particularly drawn to a dolphin and is shocked when she learns that, having failed to "talk" as hoped for, it is slated for brain dissection. She makes a desperate attempt to rescue the dolphin from the scientists, incurring first their indignation and then, when the dolphin does indeed "talk" for Helen, their futile pleas that she change her mind about leaving and stay on to help them in their experiments. But the gentle Helen has had enough--both of "Custodial Engineering" and of schemes to change man's relationship to the other creatures with whom the world must be shared.

About the Author

Paul Zindel (1936-2003) was a playwright, young adult novelist, and educator. His most well-known work, The Pigman, is a children's book often taught in classrooms to study themes of peer pressure, loss, family, and death, despite being one of the most frequently banned books in America. Zindel's debut was The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, a play for which he received the 1971 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Zindel was also awarded the Margaret A. Edwards Award from the American Library Association for his contribution to young adult literature.
