Richard Greenberg (1958-) is a Tony Award winning American playwright. He is the author of over 25 plays including eight South Coast Repertory world premieres: Our Mother's Brief Affair, The Injured Party, The Violet Hour, Everett Beekin, Hurrah at Last, Three Days of Rain (Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, Pulitzer Prize finalist, Olivier, Drama Desk and Hull-Warriner nominations), Night and Her Stars and The Extra Man. His play, Take Me Out, traveled from London to New York in the first co-production of the Donmar Warehouse and The Public Theater, and transferred to Broadway in early 2003 where it won the Tony Award for Best Play. His other plays include The Dazzle (Outer Critics Circle Award, Lucille Lortel and John Gassner nominations), The American Plan, Life Under Water and The Author’s Voice. Recently, his adaptation of August Strindberg’s Dance of Death could be seen on Broadway, starring Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren and David Strathairn. He is a winner of the Oppenheimer Award and the first winner of the PEN/Laura Pels Award for a playwright in mid-career.

Richard Greenberg grew up in East Meadow, New York, a middle-class Long Island town in Nassau County, east of New York City. He graduated from East Meadow High School in 1976. Greenberg graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University, where he roomed with Harvard economics professor Greg Mankiw. He attended Harvard for graduate work in English, and was accepted into Yale's playwriting program.
