Robert Eisele Productions
Award-Winning Writer, Producer, Poet


Robert Eisele’s writing career began in the theater and playwriting is still his first love. While a student at UCLA, his play GOATS won the American College Theatre Festival’s Pacific South Circuit. His most produced play, ANIMALS ARE PASSING FROM OUR LIVES, was developed at UCLA and then American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. The play won a playwriting fellowship for Eisele at A.C.T., where he met Peter Shaffer (playwright of EQUUS and AMADEUS) and the great Tennessee Williams. ANIMALS ARE PASSING FROM OUR LIVES was published in WEST COAST PLAYS (Volume 3, Berkeley), and distributed by Edward Albee’s American Playwrights Theater. After its UCLA and American Conservatory Theatre productions, the play was subsequently produced at Hedgerow Theatre (Philadelphia), Kentucky Cooperative Theatre (Louisville), Bonfils Theatre (Denver Center for the Performing Arts), Waterloo Playhouse (Iowa), Grassroots Experience Theatre (San Francisco), St. Clement's Theatre (New York City, staged reading), Foothill Theatre Company (Nevada City, CA), and Montana State University.

Eisele’s play, A DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, was produced at David Mamet’s St. Nicholas Theatre in Chicago to excellent reviews. His one act, THE MURDER OF EINSTEIN, was staged at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta and also aired on WETV/PBS in Atlanta. THE GREEN ROOM was produced at the University of Colorado and THE MISSING STRING and JESUS TREATS at UCLA. Eisele’s plays have been called deeply human, even mythic by critics, and have riveted audiences nationwide.
