John Drinkwater

Author Code: EJDW

Born: Jun. 1, 1882 - Leytonstone, Essex, England

Died: Mar. 25, 1937 - London, England

Drinkwater attended Oxford High School and began working in an insurance company in 1897. While continuing his career in insurance, he developed an interest in writing and published Poems in 1903, largely paid for by himself. Together with Barry Jackson, he founded the Pilgrim Players in 1907 which eventually became the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. In 1909, Drinkwater left the insurance profession and concentrated on the theatre. He produced a number of historical plays, including the very popular Abraham Lincoln (1918). Drinkwater produced more than 20 plays, a large amount of non-fiction works, many volumes of poetry and one fictional novel, Robinson of England (1937). Among his more notable works are Swords and Plowshares (1915), Persuasion (1921), Preludes 1921-1922 (1922), Oliver Cromwell (1921), All About Me (1928), More About Me (1930), Pepys: His Life and Character (1930) and A Man's House (1934).
