GIDION’S KNOT by Johnna Adams

directed by Jenny Nelson

April 9-19, 2015

@ Erector Square, 315 Peck Street, New Haven (Studio D, Building 6 West)

Over the course of a 90 minute 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, the teacher’s student, Gidion. Gidion may have been bullied or he may have been an abuser. As his story slowly unfolds a major question is weighed, who’s at fault when a student fails? Is it the responsibility of the parents? School? Or both?

TICKETS $25 Adults, $10 students

Thursday April 9: Pay What You Can preview performance, 8pm

Collective Consciousness Theatre is a multicultural theatre company dedicated to social change through the art of live theatre. We produce a two production main stage season, one in the Fall, one in the Spring. We have several productions that are available to tour year around to schools, youth facilities, prisons, communities, and theatres across the country. Each has study guides and can be enhanced with a workshop or residency. We are committed to bringing theatre right to our audiences by touring nationally since 2003. In our short existence, we have toured throughout Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Michigan, and Iowa, reaching more than 10,000 students and adults each year. We believe that theatre is a powerful art form that can inspire others, help them to imagine the possibilities and push them to ignite social change. We know that theatre changes lives and makes the world a better place when presented in a thought-provoking, engaging and honest way. We will learn and grow from theatre with our community. Our small organization, based in New Haven, Connecticut, is led by Executive Director/Board Chair, Dexter J. Singleton along with a Board of Directors and features local artists who are directors, composers, musicians, actors, and writers. They are inspired to create theatre.
