Mac Rogers

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.
