Ian Walker is the son of George Walker (composer), the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize in Music, and music historian Helen Walker-Hill. He is co-founder of the Second Wind Productions, a San Francisco theatre group, and currently serves as playwright-in-residence there. He received the International Larry Corse Award in 2006 for The Gravedigger’s Tango, and a John Golden Prize in 2000 for Vigilance. His 1991 play about Dutch art forger Han van Meegeren was the basis for the film, Forger.
He is known for his exploration of social and political themes. He describes playwriting as “an attempt to reshape the world. My plays are about trying to get to the moment where people speak the truth. The pursuit of truth in all aspects is wonderfully aggressive and violent." He currently lives in San Francisco.
