Gidion’s Knot by Johnna Adams
February 8-10 & 15-17 at 8 p.m.
February 11 & 18 at 2 p.m.
Amidst the fallout from her 5th grade son’s suspension from school, a mother demands answers. What begins as a highly charged parent/teacher conference with Gidion’s reticent teacher soon develops into a revelatory confrontation. A thought-provoking exploration that keeps us guessing about where to lay blame when children go astray. A suspenseful drama that is as elegant as it is chilling.
The production stars Sonya McCarter as Corryn Fell and Lauren Drexler as Heather Clark. Gidion’s Knot is directed by Rachel Endrizzi and with assistant director Sima Robbins.
A talkback with a panel and cast will take place after the February 18th performance. Talkbacks are open to the public and allow the discussion of ideas, themes and performance of the play. Principals Mara Vertrees and Ken Savage will host the panel. Seasoned education professional and Alliance for the Arts Assistant Director Brandi Couse will moderate.
