A Busy Day

A Busy Day $14.99

Fanny Burney adapted Alan Coveney

Published by Oberon

Large Mixed Cast
A Busy Day is a love story

It is also a witty and wonderfully-observed satire on class and greed by the most popular woman writer of her time

The scene is London in the summer of 1800, and in the course of just one busy day we are gleefully tumbled into a world of frustrated love, mistaken identity, snobbery, and downright vulgar bad manners

Fanny Burney (1752-1840), brilliant diarist and popular novelist, was an acute witness of the foibles of her time

"An uproarious and warm-heatred comedy" ~ Independent on Sunday
