Literary Agent:    n/a

Mac Rogers was born in Wisconsin and raised in North Carolina. After studying theater at UNC-Chapel Hill, Mac moved to New York and founded Gideon Productions with Jordana and Sean Williams. In the decade since, Mac has forged a career as an award-winning playwright and performer who writes and produces emotionally gripping thrillers, science fiction, horror, and dark comedies for the stage. Through critically-praised hits like Universal Robots ("one of the strongest, most exciting plays I've seen in years" Theatre Online) and Viral ("one of the best plays we've seen in New York in a very long time, and we see a lot of plays," Flavorpill), Mac combines the popular appeal of film and television genre storytelling with the best traditions of finely-etched characters and memorable dialogue of the theater to create plays that are taut, exciting, provocative, and unflinching. Mac's recent works include the darkly comic horror play Hail Satan (winner of the Outstanding Playwriting Award at the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival), Universal Robots (which won Best Off-Off Broadway Play from the New York Theatre Bloggers Association and earned four nominations from the New York Innovative Theater Awards), Viral (which won the Outstanding Play honor from the 2009 FringeNYC), and Fleet Week: The Musical (winner of the Outstanding Musical award from FringeNYC 2005). He also regularly appears as an actor in the independent theater scene in New York, and earned an NYIT nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in James Comtois's The Adventures of Nervous-Boy: A Penny Dreadful. Advance Man, the first part of Mac's science fiction trilogy, The Honeycomb, will debut in early 2012.

Blast Radius

Blast Radius
Picking up twelve years after the events of Advance Man, Blast Radius follows a sister and a brother at mortal odds in an Earth radically changed by an alien occupation. Ronnie leads a desperate human insurgency that might have finally found the weapon that will turn the tide - at a terrible cost. Abbie, who has allied himself with the conquering alien race, may have found a chilling solution that will end human resistance for good. Action-packed and emotionally charged, Blast Radius is the story of a family and a world at war with itself.

Notes:
Blast Radius is the second part of Mac Rogers' science fiction epic The Honeycomb Trilogy, three standalone plays set in the same universe chronicling a primal conflict that will redefine the nature of the human race.

Synopsis:
part of a program of new short plays presented by Gideon Productions. This description is from the company: "Gideon's producers, composed a single-paragraph plot synopsis-about the clashing agendas of a group of people surrounding a body in a room, awaiting the arrival of a 'medium' who would awaken the body-and gave it to four Dramatists with highly diverse playwriting voices to see how differently they would realize this plot as a short play. the result is four suprising plays, each with a unique style, moving characters and a different twist ending

Piper McKenzie's Dainty Cadaver

Synopsis:
18 playwrights. 3 plays. One performance of each. Piper McKenzie's Dainty Cadaver is an Exquisite Corpse-style playmaking project in which multiple playwrights collaborate on a single work without knowing what the hell the others are doing. Each writer reads the previous scene, writes a new scene, and passes it on to the next writer - who doesn't see any of what came earlier. Beautiful madness ensues. For its inaugural edition, Piper McKenzie will present one-night-only performances of three new plays written in this unique collaborative style, with results ranging from inspired chaos to eerie synchronicity - all tied together by the unique voices of 18 hot playwrights, divided into three teams and staged by three directors. the teams and their performance details are as follows: TEAM A: Fri 1/28, 8pm: Johnna Adams, Eric Bland, Jeff Lewonczyk, Mac Rogers, Crystal Skillman, Art Wallace. Directed by Jordana Williams. TEAM B: Sat 1/29, 8pm: Danny Bowes, Matt Freeman, Qui Nguyen, Carolyn Raship, August Schulenburg, Alexis Sottile. Directed by Hope Cartelli. TEAM C: Sun 1/30, 3pm: Maggie Cino, James Comtois, John DeVore, Cara Francis, Rich Lovejoy, Justin Maxwell. Directed by John Hurley.

Sovereign

Sovereign
Picking up eight years after the events of Blast Radius, Sovereign completes the story of a sister and a brother at mortal odds in a radically changed Earth. The alien race that has ruled the Earth has fallen to Ronnie's rebellion, with the few remaining survivors on the run. The human race is slowly rebuilding all over the world. Ronnie is now the battle-scarred Governor of what used to be Florida, everyone's hero and no one's friend. Until one night, when Ronnie's soldiers smuggle into her office the greatest war criminal in the world: her brother Abbie, the foremost human ally of the extraterrestrials. When dawn comes, the people of Ronnie's settlement will certainly discover him and rip him to pieces. As Ronnie grapples with an awful decision about what to do with the man she hates and loves in equal measure, Abbie makes one last desperate move, forcing a confrontation that will forever change the future of the human race. Unfolding over two suspenseful real-time acts, Sovereign brings The Honeycomb Trilogy to a wrenching and unforgettable climax.

Notes:
Sovereign is the third part of Mac Rogers' science fiction epic The Honeycomb Trilogy, three standalone plays set in the same universe chronicling a primal conflict that will redefine the nature of the human race.

Universal Robots

Universal Robots
the Great War has just ended. Czechoslovakia is a Republic with an elected President and a thriving artistic community that includes celebrated playwright Karel Capek. But history cracks wide open when a young woman walks into Karel's life with a strange mannequin in a wheelchair. . .a mannequin that gets up and moves all by itself!Universal Robots tells the alternate history of the 20th Century, beginning with the invention of the robot through the destruction of Nazi Germany at the hands of the robot army, and concluding with the horrifying robot rebellion against the human race that changed the world forever. A love story, political allegory, and redemptive tragedy, Universal Robots freely adapts Czech playwright Karel Capek's seminal 1921 play R.U.R., which introduced the word 'robot' to the world. Universal Robots departs significantly from Capek's script, offering a meaty and riveting story of war, love, faith, technology, and the power of art to change the world, for both good and ill
