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

Great acting, especially from the fast-talking, very engaging Mace. Did not like the foul language, but it was advertised for mature audiences and I suppose wrestling community speaks that way. Pretty amazing falls in the wrestling scenes, but I don't ever watch this on tv to know anymore about it.....and it was enough for me to move the story along. Terrific costumes, stage ring and set, sound effects. We were engaged, amused and entertained and would recommend it to friends.
