Stray Cat Theatre 2017-2018 Season – Our sweet 16!
CHECK OUT WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT GIDION'S KNOT
directed by Tracy Liz Miller
Over the course of a parent/teacher conference, a distraught mother and an emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher have a fraught conversation about the mother's son, Gidion. As his story is slowly uncovered, the women try to reconstruct a satisfying explanation for Gidion's violent act and come to terms with excruciating feelings of culpability.
"…resonant…harrowing…a narrative that is as elegant as it is chilling." - Washington Post
"Gidion's Knot understands one thing about school violence that many plays on this topic miss, and that's the way people's positions always change when anything involves their own kid. We are hard-wired that way." - Chicago Tribune
Not recommended for children under 13. Parental Discretion Advised.
