Abandoned as a child to the care of Squire Allworthy, Tom Jones is now grown up and launched into the bewildering romantic world. He falls madly in love with the virtuous Sophia Western, but Sophia's father is determined to keep the two apart. In his pursuit of true love, the well-intentioned Tom finds himself the object of female attention and hysterical romantic complications. Tom Jones is a bawdy and rollicking comedy for the stage.
