By Henry Fielding
Directed by Rebecca Jallings
This adaptation of Henry Fielding’s classic novel is a rousing comedy about a young man’s adventures in 18th-century England. Tom Jones, a charming womanizer, is discovered as an abandoned infant in the bed of Squire Allworthy, a wealthy landowner who raises him as his own. As a young man, Tom yearns for the beautiful Sofia, the daughter of a neighboring squire, but his amorous misadventures lead him to London and to a duel with a jealous husband. He’s sentenced to hang, but fate intervenes. There have been two versions — a film in 1963 with Albert Finney, and a TV mini-series in 1997 with Max Beesley. A dashing hero, plus lots of sword fighting, plus the requisite mistaken identities add up to lots of laughs! Don’t miss this one!
