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.

Leave It To Psmith, Chapter 4, by P.G. Wodehouse

I have little patience for slapstick and vulgur English humor, but savor the restrained clowniness of certain British actors. John Reid of D’Oyly Carte Opera Company, and Edward Petherbridge of the Dorothy L. Sayers Mystery Series inspired me as I recorded Chapter 4 of Leave It To Psmith by P. G. Wodehouse, Painful Scene At The Drones Club.
