Otway, Thomas (16511685)

Otway, Thomas, English dramatist, born in Sussex, intended for the Church; took to the stage, failed as an actor, and became a playwright, his chief production in that line being “Alcibiades,” “Don Carlos,” “The Orphan,” and “Venice Preserved,” the latter two especially; he led a life of dissipation, and died miserably, from choking, it is said, in greedily swallowing a piece of bread when in a state of starvation (16511685).
