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

A very engaging story of a modern family with 2 lesbian women, a son with probably high functioning Asperger's, and a visiting photographer who specializes in taking pictures of nude women and pre-pubescent girls. Needless to say, the Body Awareness week being led by the feminist college professor does not go as planned with the artist's presence on campus and in their home. Excellent acting, clever use of small stage and props, serious modern topics with plenty of comedic moments dealing with intimate and potential relationships and views by ourselves and others of our bodies. Highly recommend it to all!
Body Awareness is being produced as the fully-staged anchor production in The Global Age Project (GAP), an Aurora Theatre Company initiative that encourages playwrights and directors to explore life in the 21st century and beyond. In addition, several new plays dealing with global age concerns will be chosen from an international pool of playwrights and presented in a series of developmental readings during the run of Body Awareness.
