Cao Yu (September 24, 1910-December 13, 1996) was a Chinese playwright, often regarded as one of China's most important of the 20th century. His best-known works are Thunderstorm (1933), Sunrise (1936), and Peking Man (1940). It is largely through the efforts of Cao Yu that the modern Chinese "spoken theatre" took root in 20th-century Chinese literature.
