Barn Theatre Production Graphic

Tom Jones

Based on Henry Fielding’s novel by Joan MacAlpine
Directed by Jack Wood
14th – 21st November 1992

Director’s note: This is the second time I have had the pleasure of directing this delightful play. The first was for presentation at the Minack Open-Air Theatre in Cornwall and for this present Barn production I have adapted the setting, the sword–fight and the dances from that previous occasion. Credit is therefore due to Geoff Moore, John Stacey, John Wilson and Anna Twilley who designed and arranged the originals.

Described as “a pantomime without music”, Joan Macalpine’s riotous dramatisation of Henry Fielding’s great novel captures the spirit of the original while imbuing the text with a contemporary sparkle.

This is the tale of a handsome young reprobate who falls victim to the charms of one woman after another, becoming at one point entangled with three at once! After many adventures, all ends happily with Tom winning both a fortune and the girl he really loves. With its sword fights and dances, noise and colour, this is an entertainment for all the family.

Part of the Barn’s 1992-1993 Season.
