GIDION’S KNOT at Profiles Theatre (PLUS Pre-show Reception and Post-show Talk)

GIDION’S KNOT
by Johnna Adams
Directed by Artistic Director Joe Jahraus
http://www.profilestheatre.org/gidions_knot.html

Over the course of a 90-minute parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed primary school teacher engage in a fraught conversation about the recent suspension and tragedy involving Gidion. The boy may have been bullied severely -- or he may have done the abusing. The enthralling discussion develops into a dramatically charged collision of freedom of expression, the failure of our school system and personal responsibility.

    Inevitably at a Meetup I will ask if I’ve seen anything ‘good’ lately. Usually I have one or two shows still playing that I recommend. GIDEON’S KNOT is now at the top of that list! GO SEE THIS SHOW!! Don’t let the subject matter keep you away from seeing this superbly acted and directed gem. GIDEON’S KNOT is dramatic. But we shouldn’t shy away from a dramatic subject, we should embrace it. After all, that’s what theater is all about. Great show to catch during Chicago Theater Week. Tickets only $15.00. http://www.choosechicago.com/event/Gidions-Knot/23031/

      The box is there. I do notice it is the same color as the background color. I'll email Profiles about that. Click above the words "Apply Code" and the cursor will start blinking in the box. Let me know if you have more trouble.
