The Honeycomb

Akron Mennonite Church, 1311 Diamond St., Akron, PA 17501

A new show written in 2018. It will combine stories of life and faith and weave them into something we all can relate to. Stories about being a dad, a mom, a husband, a son, daughter. Partners you have in life. Laughter and loss, beginnings and endings. Training wheels, marriage, divorce, dancing, memory loss, Alzheimer’s, funeral homes, beach balls, flying on Ferris Wheels and so much more. He even has the audacity to talk about things like death and grieving and the surprises that come with the passing of friends and family. An honest look at a life filled with laughter and tears, sometimes all at once. Jeff never considers himself just a piano player or musician. He is sort of a ca-boodled mystic, wrapped around a piano in pursuit of telling a story in the best way possible. Crossing paths with those moments in life that we all encounter, but sometimes don’t want to talk about. He finds a way to give us a hook to hang those stories on. Where in the midst of all of this, does our faith land? Do we lose it or perhaps gain a little more.

In The Honeycomb, he is showing us ways to not only store up memories, but not be afraid to take them out and look at them, both the good and the bittersweet.Those moments we savor that are both sticky and sweet. Just like a honeycomb.

The show will run approximately 80-90 minutes.
