Petr Zelenka (born August 21, 1967 in Prague, Czechoslovakia) is a Czech writer and director.

His most notable work is a black comedy, "Tales of Common Insanity" (Czech: "Příběhy obyčejného šílenství"), which he personally directed at Dejvické divadlo. He received Alfréd Radok Award for Best Play. The play was later staged in other Czech theatres as well as in Poland, Hungary, Slovenia and Slovakia.
