Locke, Edward

(1869-1945)
   The actor-playwright was born in Sturbridge, Worcester, England, and came to America in 1884 to perform with a stock company. After acting with David Warfield in The Music Master, he left the stage to devote himself to writing plays. His notable success came in 1909 with The Climax, which was taken on the road by six different companies and revived on Broadway in 1919. His other plays include The Case of Becky (1912), The Silver Wedding (1913), The Bubble (1915), and The Dancer (1919).
