The Man Who Pays The Piper is a 1931 English play by Gladys Bronwyn Stern. It centres on Daryll Fairley and her shifts from rebellious daughter to independent businesswoman to housewife between 1913 and 1930, described by Michael Billington in The Guardian in 2013 as "one of the best roles written for a woman between the wars".

The play was revived by the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, London from 13 March to 13 April 2013 in a production directed by Helen Leblique. The Telegraph said that "The debate about whether a woman can 'have it all'.. does not go away. The arguments have sprung to renewed life with the publication of Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg’s book on the subject. And, as the current clever programming at the Orange Tree proves, they were being conducted just as fiercely in the early 20th century, albeit quite possibly with more sense."
