The Mercer Players will start their semester off with a performance of the award-winning play “Gidion’s Knot.”
“Gidion’s Knot” tells the story of a parent/teacher conference that twists into “a dramatically charged collision of freedom of expression, the failure of our school system, and bullying,” according to a Mercer press release.
The play will be showing at the Tattnall Square Center for the Arts from Sept. 8 to Sept. 11.
Annie Fair, stage manager and lighting designer for the show, said that she’s excited for the upcoming production.
“I love this play. The content is very intense and compelling,” Fair said. “I believe that students should attend because it addresses issues like free speech, school safety, childhood, and personal responsibility.”
“It is sure to start many discussions,” Fair said. “I like that this play asks difficult questions about these topics. It’s a very meaningful and emotional show.”
Fair urges fellow students to come out to the performance.
“It’s going to be a fantastic production,” Fair said.
Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m., and there will be a 2:30 a.m. Sunday matinee show, according to a Mercer press release.
Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door. Admission is $15 or $10 with a valid Mercer ID. Some content may not be suitable for children.
