These four plays, written by women dramatists during the Restoration, are now available in a single edition. This volume includes Mary Pix's The Innocent Mistress, Susanna Centlivre's The Busy-Body, Elizabeth Griffith's The Times, and Hannah Cowley's The Belle's Stratagem; thereby introducing readers to some of the earliest published women dramatists. The text is freshly edited using modern spelling. The critical introduction, wide-ranging annotation, and informative bibliography illuminate the plays' cultural context and theatrical potential for reader and performer alike.
