Written in 30 days flat, and staged at Covent Garden in 1841 when the author was only twenty-one, "London Assurance" is regularly rediscovered for the small comedic masterpiece it is. Published to accompany a new production on the biggest of the National Theatre stages in March 2010, starring Simon Russell Beale, this Drama Classics edition includes a full introduction, a stage history, a chronology and a glossary.
DION BOUCICAULT (Boo-si-co) was born in Dublin in 1820 and died in New York in 1890 having written some hundred and fifty plays in almost every genre, but mostly comedies and melodramas. Only a few titles are still known, among them The Shaughraun (1874) and The Colleen Bawn (1860), both successfully revived at the National Theatre
