"The sociable companions originally appeared in Cavendish's Plays, never before printed (1668). The play ... comprises two connected narratives, the first describing the successful attempts of the sisters of three impoverished Cavaliers to marry rich men, and the second concerned with the wealthy Lady Prudence's attempt to find a suitable husband"--P. 2.
