The Busy Body is a comedy written in the 18th century about love and marriage. And about secret love and foiled marriage.

The play is also about women’s rights, and University of Tennessee professor Misty Anderson says the issues in The Busy Body have some relevance today. Anderson helped adapt the play for the Clarence Brown Theatre, where it's running until March 12. WUOT Morning Edition host Victor Agreda spoke with Anderson.
