Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1815) was an Irish poet and social activist. For a long period of time he was the owner of the London Theatre Royal. His most famous literary works are ‘The Rivals’, ‘The School for Scandal’ and ‘The Duenna’. Richard Sheridan was elected a member of the Parliament from the ‘Whig’ party. He was buried at Poet’s Corner in Westminster Abbey.

‘A Trip to Scarborough’ is a play by Richard Sheridan that was first performed in 1777. John Vanbrugh’s ‘The Relapse’ served as the basis for the play with the obscene content removed. The story goes round Tom Fashion who arrives in Scarborough with no money at all but with one devoted servant - Lory.
