Michael Eichler

Michael worked most of his life as a community organizer, stumbling into play writing late in life. His very first effort, The Examining Room was performed at the North Park Play Festival in 2009. He was chosen by Playwrights Project and New Village Arts Theatre as one of San Diego's emerging playwrights in 2011. His play on mental illness, Holy Name, was read to two sold out audiences at Moxie Theatre and performed Off Off Broadway at the 13th Street Rep. In 2015 it was selected as a semifinalist in Houston's New American Voices series. Michael writes plays that have been called naturalistic with dialogue that resonates.
