“How could I not come?”

Amidst the fallout from her 5th grade son Gidion’s suspension from school, a mother demands answers. What begins as a highly charged parent/teacher conference with Gidion’s emotionally overwhelmed teacher develops into a revelatory confrontation that burrows under the surface of bullying, failures of the system, culpability of the adults and freedom of expression. Is Gidion the perpetrator, the victim or the hero of his story? Who can untie this knot? Gidion’s Knot is a poetic game of verbal chess between two women about breakdown in communications between children and the adults meant to nurture them, and the thin line between bully and victim in schools. Reverberating with more questions than answers, this heart-wrenching drama is sure to provoke deep feelings and promote vigorous conversation.

Audience Discretion Advised: Gidion’s Knot contains story elements and vivid imagery that some people may find disturbing.The nature of these elements, their causes and effects, and the response to them are central to the theme(s) the play is exploring.
