John Drinkwater was an English author and actor, probably best known for his historical plays. Born in Leytonstone, Drinkwater was a fine athlete but an indifferent student, and left school in his mid-teens to take a job as a clerk. He worked for several insurance companies in different cities, and began writing poetry after experiencing an inspirational epiphanic moment. He continued to write poetry and prose, and became active in the theater as an actor and director with the Pilgrim Players, later known as the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Drinkwater also wrote plays, some of them in blank verse, and became known for his biographical plays centered on figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Oliver Cromwell, and Robert E. Lee. His work is generally considered flawed but articulate.
