Written by George H. Jessop and Horace Townsend, this sentimental play featuring a ballad-singing stage Irishman opened 28 September 1891 at the Fourteenth Street Theatre and ran for 102 performances. It was this production that launched Chauncey Olcott to stardom in Irish character roles in 1892, after he replaced W. J. Scanlan as Terence Dwyer.
