About Author

Elizabeth Robins

Elizabeth Robins was an actress, playwright, author, and suffragist. She also wrote as C. E. Raimond. Elizabeth Robins, Charles Robins' first child with Hannah Crow, was born in Louisville, Kentucky. After experiencing financial troubles, her father left for Colorado, leaving the children in the care of their mother. When Hannah Crow was committed to an insane asylum, Elizabeth and the other children were taken to live with her grandmother in Zanesville, Ohio, where she received an education. Her grandma would provide her with The Complete Works of William Shakespeare as well as unfailing support in her endeavor to perform in New York City. Her father was a Robert Owen disciple with progressive political ideas. Despite the fact that her father was an insurance broker, he traveled frequently during her childhood, and in the summer of 1880, Robins followed him to mining camps while also attending theatre in New York and Washington. Elizabeth's brilliance made her one of her father's favorite children. He wanted her to attend Vassar College and study medicine. Robins saw her first professional play (Hamlet) when she was fourteen years old, and it sparked her desire to pursue an acting career. From 1880 to 1888, she would pursue an acting career in America.
