It has been an arduous task collating a list of best playwrights. However, after careful deliberation we believe that these playwrights deserve to be regarded as the best playwrights of all time. This list took into account craftsmanship, contribution to theatre and, of course, subjective favouritism by the Stage Milk team.

There are playwrights from several countries and periods in history. Each playwright has written a number great plays and has offered something irreplaceable to the theatre.
