Synopsis

Joseph Andrews

Joseph Andrews $12.99

P M Clepper from Henry Fielding

Published by Samuel French Ltd

7 Male 1 Female

This is Fielding's satire on "virtue in peril"

A young virtuous male is being pursued and tries to keep his honor unsullied for the lovely maiden he wants to marry

Pure Joseph is besieged by high and low born females in 18th century England

There's also Parson Adams, a sort of plump Don Quixote of a clergyman, and Lady Booby, a lively widow trying her best to stoop to conquer her handsome footman

This farce provides a Hogarthian picture of earthy action and laughter

While relatively simple to stage, it is full of challenges for a wide range of acting skills
