2016 SkirtsAfire herArts Festival presents Gidion’s Knot
March 3, 2016 - March 13, 2016$20
After a roaring success with its Canadian premiere at the 2016 Edmonton Fringe Festival, SkirtsAfire and Chorus Productions are proud to present Gidion’s Knot by American playwright Johnna Adams. The production features Lianna Shannon and Amber Lewis with direction by John Hudson and stage management by Jenn Best.
Gidion’s Knot brings us a parent teacher interview from hell; a teacher and mother’s worst nightmare. The anguished mother and emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher must come to terms with the mother’s son Gidion, who may have been severely bullied—or he may have been an abuser. As his story is revealed, the women try to reconstruct a satisfying explanation for Gidion’s shocking act and come to terms with excruciating feelings of culpability.
