Elmer Rice (1893 - 1967), an American Dramatist of the theatrically exciting 1930s, was an Experimentalist in his plays, a Concerned Liberal in his thoughts and a constant Theater Activist who with four others formed the successful Playwrights Company Producers.

From the teens in the 20th century when Rice (trained as a lawyer) produced his first remarkably successful Broadway hit, On Trial, through an activist career as a commentator on a dehumanized society in The Adding Machine (1923), Street Scene (1929) and We the People (1933) until his confrontation with McCarthyism and his final New York Production in 1963 he was a fearless protester of those aspects of society which offended his beliefs.
