Set in London in 1735 in a time of lewdness and corruption a young woman, Hilaret, embarks on eloping with her beloved and instead is caught in a street scuffle and encounters a young gentleman named Ramble. The unlikely pair are hauled in front of a corrupt judge who is attracted to Hilaret. Ramble is “saved” by the judge’s wife and the play is resolved by the insertion of Hilaret’s father into the fracas.

By Bernard Miles. Book by Henry Fielding. Lyrics by Lionel Bart, music by Laurie Johnson.
