This article is about the play. For the thriller, see Dirty Story (Ambler).

Dirty Story is a 2003 play by John Patrick Shanley. It allegorically presents the political relationship between Israel and Palestine as a sexual, sadomasochistic relationship between a man and a woman. This turbulent relationship is refereed by a gun toting, cigarette selling American cowboy and his snide British side-kick. The Off-Broadway premiere was well reviewed by the New York Times.
