Our next show:
Based on the novel by Henry Fielding
Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 October at 7.30pm
Presented by Sedlescombe Players present
Directed by Tara Buchanan, who recently brought Noises Off, ’Allo ’Allo and Cash on Delivery to the Stables, Tom Jones has been described as “a rich, ripe and bawdy romp”, with fast-moving action and larger- than-life characters. The ’70s film starring Albert Finney and Susannah York made scandalous viewing; however, the stage adaptation is a slightly more delicate affair!
Tom, a foundling adopted by the kindly Squire Allworthy, falls victim to the charms of one rustic wench after another, until at last the squire grows tired of the trouble the boy causes and sends him off to cause it elsewhere.
Then Tom becomes entangled with three women at once – with varying consequences. But will his essentially good nature win the day and can his true love forgive his dalliances?
