English dramatist and scriptwriter.

Clark is best known for his play Whose Life Is It Anyway? (1978), the story of a quadraplegic's decision to die with dignity and his legal battle with medical authorities responsible for keeping him alive. The protagonist presents his case with unsentimental logic and audiences usually support his request. Although the ethical and legal arguments raised by the play are didactic, its message is not overly moralistic.

Among Clark's other works are several television scripts which have been produced by the British Broadcasting Company and the stage play Can You Hear Me at the Back? (1979).
