Lauren Drexler is Heather Clark in ‘Gideon’s Knot’


Building on its reputation for bringing timely dramas to the stage, Theatre Conspiracy is producing Johnna Adams’ Gidion’s Knot this month. The action takes place against the backdrop of a 5th grade classroom, where a melancholy teacher by the name of Heather Clark contemplates the end of her day when she’s confronted by the mother of one of her students, a boy she had to suspend. Lauren Drexler plays the part of the teacher.

Theatre Conspiracy audiences will remember Drexler’s stellar performances as Dr. Katherine Brandt in Moises Kaufman’s 33 Variations and Annie Iversen in Jordan Hall’s Kayak. Lauren has long created memorable roles in Theatre Conspiracy’s new plays and world premieres, including Becoming Eleanor, The Dunes, Here Lie the Demons, and Virgin Tears on Wyoming Avenue. Among her other favorite productions are The Kathy & Mo Show, Medea (which one reviewer called “the role of her lifetime, one which she alone was destined to play for us”), Romance in D, Romantic Fools, No Exit, Dancing at Lughnasa, Frankie & Johnnie at the Clair de Lune, and The Eight: Reindeer Monologues.
