Michael Cook (14 February 1933 – 1 July 1994) was a Canadian playwright
Born in Fulham, London, England, Cook settled in Newfoundland, Canada, in 1965 after serving seven years in the British Army, mostly in Asia.
Most of Cook's work, including his best-known plays, Jacob's Wake and The Head, Guts and Soundbone Dance, is set in Newfoundland, which provides a sometimes realistic and sometimes richly symbolic backdrop for his poetic rendering of lives in continual conflict with the natural elements.
He fathered twelve children over the course of his life (eight in England before moving to Canada, two children with his second wife, Janis, and two more with his third).
He also retained a residence in Stratford, Ontario. He became ill on a trip to his summer home on Random Island, and died in St Johns.
