Thomas Babe

Thomas Babe (March 13, 1941 – December 6, 2000) was an American playwright, writing mainly during the mid 70s and 80s. He was the son of Thomas James and Ruth Babe. He died of lung cancer on December 6, 2000, in a hospice in Stamford, Connecticut at the age of 59. Babe's work brought together many elements of American history and cultural mythology. He was fascinated by the concept of the traditional hero figure - and the reality behind it. Strained family relationships often featured - specifically focusing on fathers and daughters, love and individual rights. These themes come together in Babe's 1977 play A Prayer for My Daughter. He contributed the short play Singleton, The Winner to the fifth volume of TEN MINUTE PLAYS FROM ACTORS THEATRE OF LOUISVILLE, also published by Samuel French, Inc.
