Dan O’Brien (born 1974) is an American playwright, poet, and librettist. His most prominent works have been the play The Body of an American and the poetry collection War Reporter. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for 2015-16. His most recent play, The House in Scarsdale: A Memoir for the Stage, is the winner of the 2018 PEN America Award for Drama.


O'Brien's debut poetry collection entitled War Reporter was published in 2013 by Hanging Loose Press in Brooklyn and CB Editions in London, edited by Charles Boyle. War Reporter received the 2013 Fenton Aldeburgh First Collection Prize, and was shortlisted for the 2013 Forward Prize for Best First Collection. O'Brien's second collection of poetry, Scarsdale, was published in 2014 by CB Editions in London and in 2015 by Measure Press in the US. O'Brien was writer-in-residence at the James Merrill House in Stonington, Connecticut. New Life, O'Brien's third poetry collection, was published in 2016 by CB Editions in London and in 2017 by Hanging Loose Press in the US. Barbara Berman writes of New Life in The Rumpus that "an original voice speaks, on a plane with earlier masters." In 2014 O'Brien was the recipient of the Troubadour International Poetry Prize.

Patrick McGuiness writes in The Guardian that War Reporter is "a masterpiece of truthfulness and feeling, and a completely sui generis addition not just to writing about war but to contemporary poetry.” War Reporter was a staff pick for best books of 2013 at Slate.com, where William J. Dobson hails it as an "incredible achievement. Anyone who cares about how we go to war—and how we return—must read it."

O'Brien wrote the libretti for two one-act operas by composer Jonathan Berger. Theotokia and The War Reporter, titled jointly as Visitations, was commissioned by Stanford Live, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Mellon Foundation, and premiered at the Bing Concert Hall at Stanford University in April 2013, directed by Rinde Eckert and performed by New York Polyphony and Mellissa Hughes. This production of Visitations received a New York City premiere at the 2014 Prototype Festival.

O'Brien is originally from Scarsdale, New York. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress, writer, comedian, and producer Jessica St. Clair. Their daughter, Isobel Kelly O'Brien, was born on October 1, 2013. He is a summa cum laude graduate of Middlebury College, and received a master's degree in Creative Writing from Brown University, graduating with high honors.


His play The Body of an American was awarded with the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama, shared with Robert Schenkkan's All the Way. It premiered at Portland Center Stage in 2012 directed by Bill Rauch, and received its European premiere in an extended run at the Gate Theatre in London and Royal & Derngate in Northampton in 2014, directed by James Dacre. The play was produced off-Broadway by Primary Stages in New York City in the 2015–2016 season, directed by Jo Bonney and distinguished by a "Critic's Pick" from the New York Times. The Body of an American is also winner of the Horton Foote Prize for Outstanding New American Play, L. Arnold Weissberger Award, administered by Williamstown Theatre Festival, and the PEN Center USA Award for Drama. The Body of an American was shortlisted for a 2014 Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.
