Gidion's Knot 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Feb. 23, 2 p.m. Continues through March 16 2014
Price: $20-27
Teacher Heather (Amy Newman) is understandably baffled when the mother of a recently deceased student chooses to keep an appointment for their parent/teacher conference, mere days after her son's death. But Corryn (Dana Green) wants answers: Who's to blame for her son's suicide? Why was he suspended from school on the day he died? Playwright Johnna Adams' script is at its most intriguing when the two women are reconstructing the inner life of Gideon—trying to piece together the world of a boy both of them thought they knew. But because the conflict between Corryn and Heather doesn't feel evenly matched, the show lacks urgency on a moment-to-moment level. ALISON HALLETT
