Gidion's Knot

 

 

Over the course of a 90-minute parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher have a fraught conversation about the death of the mother’s son, the teacher’s student, Gidion. Gidion may have been bullied severely - or he may have been an abuser. As his story is slowly uncovered, the women try to reconstruct a satisfying explanation for Gidion’s act and come to terms with excruciating feelings of culpability.

Gidion’s Knot is a poetic game of verbal chess between two women about breakdown in communications between children and the adults meant to nature them and the thin line between bully and victim in schools. This play powerfully showcases challenges faced by children, their parents, and educators when a student commits suicide. The play features graphic discussion of violence, depiction of suicide, and very strong language. It is recommended only for informed, adult audiences.
