A critical overview of the occluded role of the nineteenth-century playwright, Dion Boucicault, in the creation of modern Irish drama for a production of The Colleen Bawn, in a co-production between the Lyric Theatre and Bruiser Theatre Company. This short essay was also connected to a major article published in Theatre Survey on riotous performances of Boucicault's in Belfast in the Victorian period and also connected with my guest contribution to the Channel 4 series, Britain’s Most Historic Towns for its episode on music hall theatre in Victorian Belfast.
