Andrew James Wilson (born 2 August 1948), better known as Snoo Wilson, is an English playwright, screenwriter and director. His early plays such as Blow-Job (1971) were overtly political, often combining harsh social comment with comedy. In his later works he has moved away from purely political themes, embracing a range of surrealist, magical, philosophical and comic subjects.
After studying literature at the University of East Anglia, Wilson began his writing career in 1969. He began to build his reputation with a series of plays and screenplays in the early 1970s and served as dramaturge to the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 1978, his surrealist play The Glad Hand attracted favourable notice, as did his 1994 play, Darwin's Flood. He also wrote several novels and held teaching positions.
