At a young age he pursued a career in theatre and at age 16 his first play A Legend of the Devil's Dyke opened in Brighton, England. He followed with the successful London Assurance (1841) and also had success with two adaptations of French plays. From 1853-1860 he lived in America where he toured the country and enjoyed great popularity. He was the greatest dramatist of the Victorian era. He pioneered the role of the director in the theatre and was responsible for many innovations in stagecraft. Like P.T. Barnum he was a great showman and enjoyed great critical success and failure, making and losing fortunes. Other notable plays of his are The Shaughraun and The Colleen Bawn.

Purchase Plays by Dion Boucicault
BOUCICAULT, DION (1820-1890), Irish actor and playwright, was born in Dublin on the 26th of December 1820, the son of a French refugee and an Irish mother. Before he was twenty he was fortunate enough to make an immediate success as a dramatist with London Assurance , produced at Covent Garden on the 4th of March, 1841, with a cast that included Charles Matthews, William Farren, Mrs. Nesbitt and Madame Vestris. He rapidly followed this with a number of other plays, among the most successful of the early ones being Old Heads and Young Hearts, Louis XI, and The Corsican Brothers . In June 1852 he made his first appearance as an actor in a melodrama of his own entitled The Vampire at the Princess' theatre. From 1853 to 1869 he was in the United States, where he was always a popular favourite. On his return to England, he produced at the Adelphi a dramatic adaptation of Gerald Griffin's novel, The Comedians , entitled Colleen Bawn . This play, one of the most successful of modern times, was performed in almost every city in the United Kingdom and the United States, and made its author a handsome fortune, which he lost in the management of various London theatres. It was followed by

Victorian Web Home Authors Music, Theatre, and Popular Entertainment Dion Boucicault he Anglo-Irish dramatist Dionysius "Dion" Lardner Boucicault achieved his first great success when he was just twenty. Born in Dublin in late December 1820, Boucicault had been sent to England to complete his education. At Dr. Jamieson's Academy, Brentford, he began writing dramatic sketches. Shortly afterward, he took up a stage career under the pseudonym Lee Moreton, playing in his own Legend of Devil's Dyke at Brighton in October 1838. Then, through a lucky error occasioned by his stage name, Boucicault managed to get Charles Matthews, manager of Covent Garden, to read an unsolicited manuscript of what (with the editing and assistance of the actor-manager team of Matthews and Madame Vestris) became London Assurance . When the comedy opened on 4 March, 1841, the young dramatist's future seemed assured. The play established him as "the cleverest, raciest, and most theatrically inventive playwright of his age," as Andrew Parkin remarks in Victorian Britain, An Encyclopedia

Dion Boucicault's remarkable career began in 1841 with the successful production of his own (with Charles Mathews) London Assurance and continued virtually unabated until his death in 1890. As a playwright, he had an uncanny knack for anticipating the fickle tastes of his audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and providing them with just the novelty they wanted. When they wanted historical romance, he gave them Louis XI; when domestic plays were to be in vogue, he provided Dot (an adaptation of Dicken's The Cricket in the Hearth ); when Irish plays were to take the field, came Arrah na Pogue, The Shaughraun and Robert Emmet ; when Americans wanted to see themselves portrayed, he gave them The Octoroon ; when the sensationalism of horse-racing (and those astonishing Victorian dioramas) caught the public's eye, he gave them

    Dion Boucicault (1820-1890)
    Boucicault was an Irish-born actor and playwright who emigrated to America. He wrote or adapted more than 132 plays including "The Octoroon" and "The Shaughraun." A theater owner and stage manager, he was responsible for safety and fireproofing innovations in theaters and scenery. Boucicault also created the "long-run" self-sufficient touring company that did not rely on hiring local actors in each city.

    original name DIONYSIUS LARDNER BOURSIQUOT (b. Dec. 26, 1820/22, Dublin, Ire.d. Sept. 18, 1890, New York, N.Y., U.S.), Irish-American playwright and actor, a major influence on the form and content of American drama. Educated in England, Boucicault began acting in 1837 and in 1840 submitted his first play to Mme Vestris at Covent Garden; it was rejected. His second play, London Assurance (1841), which foreshadowed the modern social drama, was a huge success and was frequently revived into the 20th century. Other notable early plays were Old Heads and Young Hearts (1844) and The Corsican Brothers The Poor of New York, based on the panics of 1837 and 1857, had a long run at Wallack's Theatre in 1857 and was presented elsewhere as, for example, The Poor of Liverpool The Octoroon; or, Life in Louisiana (1859) caused a sensation with its implied attack on slavery. Boucicault and his actress wife joined Laura Keene's theatre in 1860 and began a series of his popular Irish plays The Colleen Bawn Arrah-na-Pogue The O'Dowd (1873), and

    18. Dion Boucicault: Sensation And Melodrama
    An essay on Boucicault s Corsican Brothers and melodrama as a genre.
    Dion Boucicault: Sensation and Melodrama The Corsican Brothers: A Dramatic Romance , Princess Theatre, Feb. 1852 Melodrama is a paradoxical and plastic dramatic genre, demonstrating both adaptability and formal restriction. Anthea Trodd has called it a ‘fascinating, repelling, elusive genre’. Recent critical opinion has recovered the form for more serious study; it is no longer dismissed as poor quality theatre characterised by bad acting. Brooks has emphasised its links to the rise of psychoanalysis, a dramatic linking of physical gesture and expression to inner conflict. In Boucicault's Corsican Brothers , we see an early Victorian exploration of the split self, or doppelganger, a play that predicts the more famous Victorian doubles of Dickens and Collins. The play also explores popular contemporary mysteries of the inner mind, such as the interest in telepathy and clairvoyance. The first melodrama is said to be Thomas Holcroft's Tale of Mystery , Covent Garden Theatre, 1802, which firmly locates the origins of the form in Gothic drama. Othere recent critics have suggested melodrama's political side, as a democratic, popular form that emerged after the French revolution, and ‘made central the powerless and the inarticulate’. Figures like the British Tar (the sailor), soldier, working man, and Irish peasant, are regular characters in the early melodramas. But, like the Gothic romance, it can also be seen as a conservative form: it changes little and yet has many varieties.
