Gidion’s Knot takes place in a 5th grade classroom during a parent/teacher conference. A grieving mother and an overwhelmed teacher have a fraught conversation about the suicide of the mother’s son, the teacher’s student, Gidion. Was he a bully? Was he a victim? Was he a protector? Or, was his young and vivid imagination simply too powerful a tool for the adults around him? As his story is uncovered, the women try to construct an explanation for his behavior and come to terms with who, or what, is truly to blame. Gidion’s Knot is a heart-wrenching, devastatingly beautiful work about the power of words and freedom of expression.
