Théodore Barrière (1823 – 16 October 1877), French dramatist, was born in Paris.

He belonged to a family of map engravers which had long been connected with the war department, and spent nine years in that service himself. The success of a vaudeville he had performed at the Beaumarchais and which was immediately snapped up for the repertory of the Palais Royal, showed him his real vocation. During the next thirty years he signed, alone or in collaboration, over a hundred plays; among the most successful were:

  • Malheureux vaincus (1865), which was forbidden by the censor
  • Le Gascon (1878).

Barrière died in Paris.
