Émile Fabre (24 March 1869 in Metz, France – 25 September 1955 in Paris) was a French playwright and general administrator of the Comédie-Française from 2 December 1915 to 15 October 1936. He was greatly influenced by Balzac as a young man, and most of his best-known plays deal with the sacrifice of personal happiness to the pursuit of wealth. He also wrote the libretto for Xavier Leroux's opera Les cadeaux de Noël (The Christmas Gifts) which was a great success when it premiered in Paris in 1915.
Fabre's plays include:
- L'Argent (Money), 1895
- La Vie publique (Public Life), 1901
- Les Ventres dorés (Gilded Stomachs), 1905
- Les Sauterelles (The Locusts), 1911
