Quotes & Highlights
“Amy J. Carle, who plays this grieving mother, is turning in a blistering piece of acting, one of the best of the season … Jahraus’ production is really very jolting and well worth a trip to the little caldron on North Broadway.” -Chicago Tribune
“A tangle of shifting sympathies and treacherous turns, Johnna Adams’ spare 75-minute, two-hander one-act teeters on a knife edge during every burning second.” -Stage and Cinema
“It’s rare to see a play where the entire audience just holds their breath waiting for what’s going to happen next. It’s even rarer to have it between only two people in a confined space with no intermission. But Profiles Theatre offers just that with their latest and most intense production, Gidion’s Knot.” —Chicago Theater Beat
