The Busie Body, by Susanna Centlivre

The Busie Body, A Comedy, by Susanna Centlivre

A rich heiress pretending to be in love with her guardian, but with several other suitors. A jealous merchant from Spain with a beautiful but cloistered daughter. A Busy Body who tries to know everybody else’s business. Conniving servants. Plot elements stolen — and improved —  from Moliere, Johnson, and Dryden. Definitely comedy, and written by a very successful woman playwright. (Summary from Todd H W for LibriVox)

I played Isabinda in this production, the beautiful but cloistered daughter ready for marriage proposals.
Download or listen to the play at Internet Archive.
