James Robinson Planché (February 27, 1796May 30, 1880) was a British dramatist.

Planché's early works were "generally unremarkable", one exception in this period being The Vampire, or, The Bride of the Isles, produced at the Lyceum in August 1820, an adaptation of Charles Nodier's Le Vampire (itself a dramatisation of John Polidori's novel The Vampyre). One of the play's attractions was the introduction of the vampire trap, a trapdoor in the stage which allowed an actor to disappear (or appear) almost instantly.
