1921 - 1922

Tom Jones

Tom Jones is a lively young foundling who has been brought up by Squire Allworthy. He is much loved by everyone, unlike Allworthy’s nephew, Blifil, an unlikeable character who is jealous of Tom. Tom stays with Squire Western while recovering from an accident while saving the life of the Squire’s daughter, Sophia. Tom falls desperately in love with Sophia, but the Squire has arranged for her to marry Blifil. Tom is cast off when it is discovered that he and Sophia are in love.


Act 2 opens at an inn in Upton, near London. Tom has rescued Lady Bellaston, a kinswoman of the Westerns, from the hands of some highwaymen and brings her to the inn. When Lady Bellaston makes advances, he refuses, wishing to remain faithful to Sophia. Sophia runs away with her maid, Honour, in an attempt to find Tom. She plans to seek refuge with her cousin, Lady Bellaston, but hears that Tom is at the inn and goes there. Squire Western follows on her trail, but he also ends up staying at the inn because of an attack of gout. All these people are in the hostel unknown to each other. Things get tangled up worse when the apothecary Benjamin Partridge shows up. He knows secrets about the mystery of Tom’s birth. After some drinking, Tom makes advances to whom he thinks is Lady Bellaston, but it is actually Sophia in disguise. Sophia leaves the inn, heart-broken. Tom chases after her in Lady Bellaston’s coach, accompanied by Partridge.


Some weeks later a fête is in progress at the Ranelagh Gardens in London. The guests dance and chat as they wait for the arrival of Sophia Western. Tom has been unable to see her as he has been denied admission to Lady Bellaston’s house. Partridge reveals to Allworthy that Tom is actually his real nephew and the older brother of Blifil. Tom is now in favour. Squire Western consents to the marriage of Tom and Sophia. Everything ends happily.
