A parent-teacher conference begins with a mother seeking answers to why her son was suspended from his fifth-grade class. The teacher is apprehensive until their fraught discussion develops into a dramatically charged collision of freedom of expression, the failure of our school system, bullying and personal responsibility. As the women challenge each other, they earn our compassion and a few much-needed laughs, but can they -- and you -- untangle the knot of questions that troubled young Gidion? Making its Bay Area premiere, Gidion's Knot is a heart-wrenching adult drama by Princess Grace Award winner Johnna Adams and was a finalist for this year's Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award. Washingtonian Magazine called it "heart-stopping" drama. Learn More

This play is just plain fun to see. You really get the payoff in the second act. The six female characters are all played by the same actress. She doesn't fully develop all 6 but it's a treat to see her make the transformations. The translation is notable for modernizing the narrative. At first the two male actors seemed to have been miscast but as the play goes on they both feel well suited to their respective roles.
