Philadelphia New Play Initiative presents a meet-and-greet with playwright Johnna Adams and Foundry member Jeremy Gable this Friday, January 24th. This event will follow the industry night performance of Adams’s play Gidion’s Knot at InterAct Theatre Company. Adams and Gable will discuss the process of production and the playwright observership Adams created for Gable.
About the play:
A grieving mother arrives at her son’s school looking for answers following his sudden death. She is met by his bewildered and fragile teacher. As their tense, emotionally-charged parent/teacher conference unfolds, reasons for the boy’s death become more complex and alarming. Adams’ gripping drama draws us into an intensely personal battle to understand the vivid imagination and tortured soul of one extraordinary ten year-old boy.
