Richard brinsley sheridan the school for scandal
After marrying Linley, Sheridan had to find a way to make money, and he turned to the theater, quickly writing a play called The Rivals , that (eventually, after some rewriting and recasting) became a great success. He started a business partnership with his father-in-law, and, with another investor, they purchased a controlling interest in the Drury Lane Theatre from the great actor David Garrick, who was retiring. Sheridan remained the main shareholder of the company for decades, even as his attention increasingly turned to politics. Sheridan became one of the most important politicians of the period, a central figure in the Whig party until the early 1810s. Because of his increasing involvement in politics, Sheridan did not write too many plays after the 1770s, but he kept an interest in the Drury Lane Theatre. He was famously terrible with money, constantly hounded by creditors, and died in 1816, pretty much broke. His most popular dramatic works, particular The Critic, The Rivals, and The School for Scandal , however, remain some of the most frequently-staged plays from this period in the repertory.

Ashwell describes performances where the rapt faces and emotional response from the troops were well-nigh overwhelming. In the Harfleur valley she watched Novello, who had just written Keep the Home Fires Burning, singing in a smoke-filled room jam-packed with soldiers. “When he sang it, the men seemed to drink it in at once and instantly sang the chorus, and as we drove away at the end of the concert, in the dark and the rain and the mud, from all parts of the camp one could hear the refrain.”
In 1787 Sheridan demanded the impeachment of Warren Hastings , the first Governor-General of India . His speech  in the House of Commons was described by Edmund Burke , Charles James Fox and William Pitt as the greatest ever delivered in ancient or modern times.
