THE BUSY BODY,

ACTED at the Theatre Royal in Drurylane 1709. At the rehearsal of it, Mr. Wilks had so mean on opinion of his part (Sir George Airy) that one morning in a passion he threw it off the stage into the pit, and swore that nobody pould oil to bear such stuff. The poor frighted poeless (Mrs. Centlivre) begged him with tears to take it up again, which he did mutteringly: and about the latter end of April the play was acted for the first time. There had been scarcely any thing mentioned of it in the town before it came out; but those who had heard of it, were told it was a silly thing Frillen by a woman; that the players had po opinion of it, etc, and on the first day there was a very poor house, scarcoly charges. Under these circumstances it cannot be supposed that the play appeared to much advantage; the audienco caly came there for want of another place to go to; but without any expectation of being much diverted. They Here yawning at the beginning of it, but were agreeably surprised, more and more every act, till at last the house rung with as much applause as was possible to be given by so thin an audience. The next day there was a betler house, and the third crowded for the benefit of the author, and so it continued till the thirteenth. To do justice to the author, it must be confessed, that although the language of it is very indifferent, and the plot mingled with some improbabilities, yet the amusing sprightliness of business, and the nalural impertinence in the charaçier of Marplot, make considerable amends for the above-mentioned deficiencies, and render it even to this hour an entertaining performance.

The dumb scene of Sir George with Miranda, and the history of the garden gate, are both borrowed from Ben Jonįmon's comedy of The Devil's an Ass. This play was dedicated to Lord Somers. Sir Richard Steele, speaking of it,

sayı, “The plot and the incidents are laid with that subtility of spirit which is peculiar to females of wil, and is very seldom well performed by those of the other sex, in whom craft in love is an act of intentivn, and not, as with womea. the elect of nature and instinct."
