Reiner Prochaska

Reiner ProchaskaReiner Prochaska is an actor, playwright, and novelist. Born and raised in Germany, Reiner has lived in the United States since 1990. He discovered his love of Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Drama as an undergraduate student at Shepherd College (now University), where he was a member of The Rude Mechanicals. In 2001, he earned his Master of Science Degree in Professional Writing (creative track) from Towson University, where he has been teaching writing ever since.

Most of Reiner’s plays have been professionally produced at Maryland Ensemble Theatre (Canterbury Tales: Love and Marriage in 2010, Antigone: Through the Ages in 2012, A Revolutionary Christmas in 2014), where he has been a company member since 2005.

Reiner’s first film, Limits to Ambition—which he wrote, produced, and performed in—won a prize at the New York International Independent Film Festival in 2006.

In 2017, he founded his own theatre company, Frederick Classical Ensemble. As its Artistic Director, Reiner’s mission is to preserve the classics by bringing modern, accessible adaptations of them to contemporary audiences. In 2017, he wrote a new adaptation of The Second Shepherds’ Play, which he has produced at various venues in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

In October of 2019, Reiner published his World War II novel, Captives, about a group of German soldiers planning an escape from a POW camp in Maryland in 1944. The novel, published by The Permanent Press, explores the challenge of preserving our humanity in the face of adversity.
