Fritz Hochwaelder (1911 - 1986) was an Austrian playwright. Known for his spare prose and strong moralist themes, Hochwaelder won several literary awards, including the Austrian State Prize for Literature in 1966. Most of his plays were first played at the Burgtheater in Vienna.
Hochwaelder wrote social and political dramas, using historical themes in his plays.
After entering Switzerland, Hochwälder spend some time in refugee camps. As he was barred by the Swiss from working in his profession, he began in earnest to write plays (he had also written plays in pre-war Vienna without much critical success).
