Gidion's Knot
by The Surround Project

Jun. 18 - Jun. 28
Thursdays-Sundays

This summer, The Surround Project will once again partner with The Classic Theatre of San Antonio as part of their Second Series. We are tackling the subjects of school violence, bullying, child suicide, and mental health with Johnna Adams' play Gidion's Knot

After seeing many talented actors, director Mark McCarver has cast our summer production. Catherine Babbitt (recently seen as Ellen in Four Places) will play Corryn and Eva Laporte will play Heather, marking her return to the stage in San Antonio.

Via Dramatists Play Service:

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.
 
"…resonant…[a] particularly eloquent study of people caught between the competing demands of reason, morality and family…harrowing…a narrative that is as elegant as it is chilling." —Washington Post.
 
"…heart-stopping…the show has pathos and suspense in bucketloads…Within a lean 80 minutes, the show raises profound questions about parenting and education and documents the gut-wrenching force of maternal loyalty." —Washingtonian.
 
"GIDION'S KNOT is as sad as life itself, and as funny and startling as well…a beautiful, disturbing story." —DCTheatreScene.com.
