David Henry Hwang

David Henry Hwang is an American playwright, screenwriter and librettist. He is best known for his Tony Award-winning play M. Butterfly (1988), based on the true story of a French diplomat who had a long affair with a singer in the Beijing opera. In David Henry Hwang’s plays, East and West often meet—and the results are usually not pretty.

Hwang is the playwright who has had created the most critical and commercial success in confronting issues of Asian and Asian-American identity. Confrontational and sharply humorous, Hwang has helped carve a place for Asian-American theater in the US.
