Gidion’s Knot

Eclectic Full Contact Theatre at Athenaeum Theatre
2936 N. Southport Avenue, Chicago, 60657 | directions
773-935-6875

Over the course of a parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher have a fraught conversation about the tragic suicide of the mother’s son, 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.
