The Author’s Farce 
by Henry Fielding 

Total running time: 02:19:30 

Henry Fielding could not write plays that he could get published, so 
he decided to write a play about that, and success was his at last. 
This play, The Author’s Farce, includes a puppet show as its third act 
called The Pleasures of the Town. This play within a play is 
supposedly written by the titular author, and uses regular actors 
rather than puppets despite being understood as a puppet show 
within the narrative.
