The original stars of Dorothy when the piece opened at the Gaiety Theatre, London, on 25 September 1886, were Marie Tempest as Dorothy Bantam and Hayden Coffin as Harry Sherwood. The latter was still playing Sherwood, opposite Effie Chapuy as Dorothy Bantam, at the time that this programme was printed. This production of Dorothy was the first piece to be staged at the new Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, upon its opening on 17 December 1888.
