Adam Brace (born 1980, London, England)[1] is a British playwright. His play Stovepipe,[2] performed in promenade, premiered at the HighTide festival in Suffolk before transferring to London for an eight-week run in collaboration with the National Theatre.[3] The play is about corporate soldiers and Brace wrote it after a tour of Jordan where he conducted interviews with men in that job. The play was critically acclaimed, receiving numerous five star reviews and being called "rivetingly intelligent"[4] by the Sunday Times and "exhilaratingly convincing[5]' by The Independent. The play was named at number 10 in The Times Top Twenty Plays of the Decade.[6]

He has also written a play called A Real Humane Person Who Cares And All That,[7] which was performed in Edinburgh in 2008, before transferring to the Arcola in London.
