Lord Dundreary

!New Old Theater rediscovers America’s best known lost play! One hundred and fifty years after the death of President Lincoln. New Old Theater announces a new production of Tom Taylor’s delightful comedy Our American Cousin. Our American Cousin premiered in 1858 running for 140 nights in New York and 400 in London before 1865. It was seen by hundreds of thousands of people and influenced fashion, cartoons, and slang expressions on both sides of the Atlantic. One character in the play became the most recognized comic character of the 19th Century stage….Lord Dundreary!

New Old Theater is presenting this comedy/melodrama at the Henrico Theater thanks to generous support from the Henrico Historical Society. Although the play’s length has been shortened somewhat, audiences will enjoy all of the original social satire, comedy, romance, and excitement of this eccentric story.
