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

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening of 4 short one-act plays. There were touching and humorous sections in each phase of life. The final play was the most thought provoking, with skillful movement of each passage of time in the life of this extended family at Christmas dinner. Very clever and thoughtful.
