Frances Sheridan is now remembered, if at all, as the mother of the playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan. Yet, in her own day, she was a novelist and playwright whose work was admired by her contemporaries, David Garrick, Samuel Johnson. James Boswell, and Samuel Richardson. The appearance of all of this dramatist's long-out-of-print work reveals her to be an authoress worth studying, not only as an important influence on her son, but in her own right.
