John O'Keeffe (1747-1833) was an Irish actor and dramatist. He wrote a number of farces, amusing dramatic pieces and librettos for pasticcio operas, many of which had great success. The She Gallant was written at the age of 18, and was his second attempt at the drama, his fist having been The Generous Lovers, which he wrote at age 16.
