About the show

Gideon Productions presents a three part sci-fi epic by Mac Rogers, following one American family through an extraterrestrial invasion and the occupation of Earth. More…

A decade-spanning science fiction epic begins as son Abbie allies with the extraterrestrial conquerors and daughter Ronnie leads the human resistance. The entire saga takes place in the same house, as it - much like the world around it - is ravaged by war and rebuilt by hand over the course of twenty years. The three parts of the trilogy will be presented individually on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights. On Saturdays and Sundays audiences can binge-watch the entire trilogy. 'The Honeycomb Trilogy' explores culture, terrorism, sexuality, loyalty, justice, and forgiveness over the course of three action-packed, emotionally-charged stories.

Ambitious, Absorbing, L-o-n-g

See it if you enjoy a futuristic saga

Don't see it if 6 1/2 hours is too long for you

Ambitious, Epic, Original, Relevant, Uneven

See it if you think a play in a genre usually reserved for film&TV, with themes that resonate now and played w utter commitment, is the bee's knees.

Don't see it if sitting for 7 hours of anything less than constant brilliance will make you want to spray the place with Raid. Still, it set my mind abuzz.

Clever, Indulgent, Must see, Thought-provoking

See it if You want a unique show experience of Sci-Fi on stage with great emotionally-charged storytelling.

Don't see it if You aren't a Sci-Fi fan.

Refreshing, Intense, Indulgent, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if You want to see epic sci-fi onstage, and don't mind a little melodrama.

Don't see it if You can't sit through one horribly acted play to get to a better one.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Epic, Great writing, Profound

See it if You love life-and-death, fate-of-the-planet-hangs-in-the-balance stories, or keen observations of human nature, or brilliant writing.

Don't see it if You hate thinking or feeling. (You WILL like this show even if you don't love sci fi)

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Original

See it if You are interested in an original story, set through the lens of a post-apocalyptic scenario.

Don't see it if You're not willing to see the story weave itself together. You're silly not to be, because Part II (Blast Radius) does it so well.

"Jordana Williams's direction isn't always as strong as it could be, causing some of the climactic scenes to take on a tinge of melodrama. But there's far more to praise than disparage here. Rogers's script crackles with wit and intelligence; as rounded as the world he's created is, it simply cou...

"The ensemble cast is a joy to watch and director Jordana Williams is nothing short of an absolute bad ass. Williams and her production team’s achievements with the trilogy are simply remarkable, creating a style and a sense of action that is a genre onto itself...Rogers has accomplished a wholly...

"'The Honeycomb Trilogy' addresses issues such as eco-terrorism, migration reform, and same sex unions in smarter ways than anything else produced over the last decade…An admirable achievement in terms of production, but it’s the brilliance of the writing that strikes the most, because of Rogers’...
