About the Company: Gideon Productions
GIDEON PRODUCTIONS crafts gripping plays that explore human grace and darkness, through the kaleidoscope of popular genre forms and other cultural touchstones. We reject the notion that thrills are cheap or that big ideas are boring. We explore what’s strange about being human and what’s human about being strange, using thrilling entertainment as a delivery system for challenging stories that take on religion, sexuality, politics, compulsion, popular culture, and the often strange bonds that tie people together in a rapidly changing world. We honor the time our audiences and collaborators devote to our productions and seek to deliver the utmost quality in experience and content.
Previous shows include the critically acclaimed productions of Universal Robots at The Sheen Center, The Honeycomb Trilogy at The Gym at Judson, Frankenstein Upstairs at The Secret, Asymmetric at 59E59, and Viral at FringeNYC ‘09.
