by Mac Rogers
Full Length Play, Drama / 5m, 4f
Critics' Pick! ”As in Blast Radius, Mr. Rogers displays an impressive control over his sprawling material, creating a convincing postapocalyptic world inside a sturdy theatrical structure [...] Sovereign has a driving pace and a sneaky theatrical intelligence.” - The New York Times, Read More
Critics' Pick! “The crackling alien-takeover drama can operate independently of its former installments. In fact, winding blind through the narrative maze [...] creates the sensation of gradually unfolding truth, of hearing a story at the edge of great complexity." - Time Out NY, Read More
Critics' Pick! "[...] a play every bit as rich and daring as the previous two [...] ably completing the long and stirring transmutation through which Rogers has taken these characters-from small domestic anxieties to far-reaching debates about mankind’s survival in the face of oppression and moral decay.” - Backstage, Read More
“This is science fiction, but first and foremost, it’s effective drama [...] I feel honored to have borne witness to this magnificent series in its entirety. Go.” - Broadwayworld.com, Read More
“[...] an intimate, emotional work, bridging the head and the heart without ever resorting to pathos or unearned sentiment. The emotional material here is so deft that it pushes for real estate on a par with Shakespeare, Ibsen and O’Neill [...] So make the time to catch this show – you’ll regret it if you don’t.” - New York Press, Read More
