“The Dramatic Works of Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton” contains the following plays: “The Lady of Lyons”, “The Sea-Captain”, “Money”, “The Duchess de la Valliere”, “Richelieu”, “Walpole”, “Not So Bad as We Seem”.
Bulwer-Lytton, in the history of English drama, is a much larger place than in the history of the English novel. Without it you can not get an idea about the English drama of the nineteenth century. Do not, of course, compare Bulwer with the luminaries of the British drama of other centuries, but for its time it was the only talented and close to great literature writer whose dramas were regularly staged on a professional stage and had lasting success.
Play "The Lady of Lyons; or Love and Pride", written in 1838, the same year placed on the stage of London's Covent Garden.
The drama of "Richelieu; or, The Conspiracy", written in 1839, delivered in the same year on the stage of London's Covent Garden.

Play "Not So Bad As We Seem; or, Many Sides to a Character", written in 1851 for the company of Amateurs headed by Charles Dickens, and in the same year put the company in the house of the Duke of Devonshire in London.
