Michael Cook (14 February 1933 – 1 July 1994) was a Canadian playwright.
Most of Cook's work, including his best-known plays, Jacob's Wake and The Head, Guts and Soundbone Dance, are set in Newfoundland, which provides a sometimes realistic and sometimes richly symbolic backdrop for his poetic rendering of lives in continual conflict with natural elements.
