Stoker became interested in the theatre while a student and became the theatre critic for the Dublin Evening Mail. In 1878, Stoker married Florence Balcombe, daughter of Lieutenant-Colonel James Balcombe and together they moved to London, where Stoker became acting manager and then business manager of Irving’s Lyceum Theatre, London, a post he held for twenty-seven years.
