Amlin Gray 1946–

American dramatist.

Gray, playwright-in-residence at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, achieved national recognition for his play How I Got That Story, which won an Obie Award in 1981. The play presents a bleak, nihilistic vision of American involvement in a fictionalized Vietnam. To represent the complexity of Vietnam, Gray created a tour-de-force multicharacter role which he called The Historical Event. This character is a foil to a naive American reporter, who is the only other character in the play.
