Notes:

Original Playwright - Fanny Burney (1752 - 1840). All performing rights through Samuel French

Synopsis:

A Busy Day is both a love story and a witty and wonderfully observed satire on class and greed. The scene is London in the summer of 1800. 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, brilliant diarist and popular novelist, was an acute witness of the foibles and manners of her time. She was also a playwright whose best work for the stage was unperformed in her day. The manuscript of A Busy Day was trapped in France during the Napoleonic wars and them lay dormant for two hundred years before being rediscovered as a sparkling gem of late eighteenth-century comic writing, premiered in Bristol in 1993 and eventually in the West End in 2000. A sympathetic adaptation by actor and director Alan Coveney.
