Thame Players Present
by Joan MacAlpine, adapted from Henry Fielding’s novel
Tuesday 11th – Saturday 15th July at 7.45 pm
Before Bridgerton, there was Tom Jones. Tom Jones has been a movie, a musical, several TV series, and a play – now coming to the Players Theatre! Set in the eighteenth century, it’s a rich, ripe, rowdy, bawdy romp of a comedy. It tells the story of a young man who was ‘much beset by women’, and the trouble this causes, as he falls victim to the charms of one rustic wench after another! It’s a story of honesty vs lies, love vs lust, and virtue vs treacherous hypocrisy. It’s also a lot of fun.
Tickets £8 to £12
Gala Night Tuesday 11th July. All patrons will receive a free drink in the interval and a complimentary programme. All tickets are £12

Will Audrey II take over the world or will Seymour defeat it? This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International.
