All the girls love a bastard!


Mr Henry Fielding and Company most respectfully announce to the Ladies and Gentlemen of The New Forest their intention of staging Mr Fielding's novel, 'A History Of Tom Jones, a foundling'!


​The story follows the adventures of a young man of illegitimate birth through a tale of love, deception and mistaken identity; a feast of human nature, served up in the plain and simple manner of the West Country, but hashed and ragoud with all the high French and Italian seasoning of sex and vice. Will Tom gain his darling Sophia's hand? Will he escape the hangman's noose? Will he ever learn to keep it in his trousers?



★★★★ Public Reviews on Tom Jones in 2011

"The quality of the adaptation… makes for a thoroughly entertaining evening... a delicious and varied meal is enjoyed by all"


The Stage on Tom Jones in 2011

"Packed full of saucy wenches, indulged aristocrats and pompous hypocrites, Tom Jones is a highly entertaining romp played out with just the right amount of bawdy humour"
