Can you untangle Gidion’s Knot?
A parent/teacher conference begins as a mystery with a mother seeking answers as to why her son, Gidion, has been suspended from his 5th grade class. The teacher is apprehensive until their discussion develops into a dramatically charged collision of convictions about limits of freedom and creativity, bullying and youth sexuality, the legal minefield of public-private relations, and parental and personal responsibility. Gidion’s Knot is a heart-wrenching, adult-oriented drama by Princess Grace Award winner, Johnna Adams. Selected by American Theatre magazine for full script inclusion in their December 2012 issue, and a finalist for the 2013 Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, Gidion’s Knot is a visceral and provocative theatre experience unlike any other and sure to promote heated debate.
“No matter how many parent-teacher conferences you've participated in, it's doubtful that you've ever attended one as gripping, edgily funny and fraught with hot-button issues as Johnna Adams' Gidion's Knot.”—San Francisco Chronicle
