Mars Gorman

Margaret “Mars” Gorman (they/she) is a scriptwriter and comedian based in Brooklyn, NY. Their imaginative, rich work tackles themes of identity, mortality, and self-acceptance. As laugh-out-loud funny as it is emotionally grounded, Mars’ fresh writing draws from their experience as a disabled, queer, and neurodivergent person.

Mars’ plays have been performed by Adventure Theatre, H-B Woodlawn Theater, and the Bryn Mawr College Greek Play Troupe. Mars is currently enrolled in Stony Brook University’s MFA program in Television Writing.
