"Gidion's Knot at Tempe Center for the Arts is fantastic! A play that challenges the artistic team and the audience alike. Tracy Liz Miller has directed this play with precision and care. Congratulations to Ralph Remington and the Tempe Center for the Arts and to Ron May and Stray Cat Theatre for such a bold and brave co-production. Kudos!" KB
"Lovely venue, talented cast of two and engaging performance. Gideon's mother, Corryn, was articulate, unforgiving and insinuatingly snarky. She resorts to one rhetorical strategy after another to pierce the silence and quite forced courtesy of Heather, the teacher. Corryn's desperation for the truth with a sidebar need for emotional revenge is fearless in nature as the audience ponders is it hers or the school's failing. The action unfolds in real time, while Heather stalls and evades, stalling until her principal arrives, who in actuality has no intention of showing up at all. The women argue over values, aesthetics, the vulnerabilities of developing children, the snap assumptions people make about one another, the nature of courage and of responsibility. Though the intensity starts at a high boil, it escalates inescapably throughout, as the actors confront the audience as much as one another with their characters’ pain, dip-and-dodge approach to the issues at hand and fail attempts to cope with their respective degrees of guilt and regret. A must see but be prepared to test your own opinions on a subject matter that is all too close to today's reality." - goldstar review
