A parent/teacher conference begins as a mystery, with a mother seeking answers as to why her son, Gidion, has been suspended from his 5th grade class. The teacher is apprehensive, but starts to reveal the cause for Gidion's suspension. Their discussion develops into a dramatically charged collision of blame, freedom of expression, the failure of our school system, suicide and personal responsibility.
PLEASE NOTE: Gidion’s Knot is a 80 minute play performed without an intermission, comprised of a parent/teacher conference in which themes of freedom of expression, bullying, responsibility and suicide are discussed. Recommended for high school and up.
This show is double cast.
