David Lindsay-Abaire (born November 30, 1969) is an American playwright and lyricist. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2007 for his play Rabbit Hole, which also earned several Tony Award nominations.

Lindsay-Abaire was born David Abaire in South Boston, Massachusetts in a family of five which he describes as "very blue collar." His mother was a factory worker and his father worked for the Chelsea fruit market. He attended Boston public schools until the seventh grade, when he received a six-year scholarship to Milton Academy, a New England prep school. It was there that he first became interested in writing for the theatre. He contributed what he has called "terrible, terrible plays" as a result of the school's tradition of presenting original student work. He went on to concentrate in theatre at Sarah Lawrence College. He was accepted into the Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program at the Juilliard School, where he wrote under the tutelage of playwrights Marsha Norman and Christopher Durang.

Lindsay-Abaire has received commissions from South Coast Repertory, Dance Theater Workshop, and the Jerome Foundation, as well as awards from the Berilla Kerr Foundation, the Lincoln Center LeComte du Nuoy Fund, Mixed Blood Theater, Primary Stages, the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center, the Tennessee Williams/ New Orleans Literary Festival, and the South Carolina Playwrights Festival.
