Marsden, Fred


Marsden, Fred
(1843-1888)
   Born William A. Sliver in Baltimore, he gave up his law practice and changed his name to become an actor. However, it was as a writer of stage material for celebrities that he made a fortune. He wrote regularly for stage Irishmen including Joe Murphy (for whom Marsden wrote Kerry Gow, 1880), Roland Reed (Cheek, 1883), and W. J. Scanlan (The Irish Minstrel, 1884). Among his other plays produced in New York were Zip, or Point Lynde Light (1874), Musette (1876), and Otto, a German (1881).
