About this show

A comically sexy celebration of the truths and realities of life, this adaptation brings to the stage Henry Fielding's 1749 novel, Tom Jones, a story also adapted into the highly popular, academy-award winning 1963 film by Tony Richardson, starring Albert Finney. The story follows the journey of a bastard child of mysterious origin who is adopted into the family of one Squire Allworthy. Limited by the inability to inherit the family fortune and desperately in love with Sophia Western, the young gentlewoman of a neighboring estate, Tom finds himself in a whirlwind of circumstantial dilemmas and break-neck love affairs, providing the audience with a healthy dose of hearty comedy.
