English playwright and novelist whose works tended to expose social issues of personal concern. His 1959 play, Serjeant Musgrave's Dance, dealing with the realities of war and protesters against it, is considered his best. He also wrote several novels, including Silence Among the Weapons, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1982.
