Bijan Mofid (Persian: بیژن مفید‎‎; May 31, 1935 – November 2, 1984) was an influential Iranian playwright and stage director.

He was born in Tehran in 1935. After teaching for several years at the University of Tehran, he founded a theater workshop, where many of Iran's finest actors received their training.
