Gidion's Knot

Seemingly ripped from the newspaper headlines, Gidion's Knot tells of a mother's grief and search for understanding after her 10-year-old son, Gidion, commits suicide. When she confronts the teacher who suspended Gidion before his death, their meeting becomes a potboiler of emotions as accusations fly and questions are raised: Was Gideon a bully or a victim? Could his death have been avoided? And what did his poetic, yet mysterious, suicide note mean? In one act, which Richmond Times-Dispatch critic Julinda Lewis calls "80 minutes of the most intense live theater I have ever seen," both women seek to understand the inner, tortured life of a boy with uncharted imagination. As they work toward closure, powerhouse performances from Alice M. Gatling and Karen Peakes bring audiences to the edge of their seats, inspiring them to unravel Gidion's Knot long after the curtain falls.
