“Get one wedding in a family, and it goes through the lot like measles!”
Harold Brighouse’s classic comedy from the cobbles of Lancashire. The hilarious trials and tribulations of bombastic boot-shop owner Henry Horatio Hobson and his three uppity daughters in 1880s Salford.
When Hobson teases his eldest, and most headstrong, daughter Maggie about being past the marrying age, she promptly retaliates by marrying his best boot-hand, Willie Mossop, and setting up a rival shop. Hobson’s future looks uncertain. As a battle of wills ensues between father and daughter, can the hapless Willie triumph?
Hobson’s Choice is a timeless tale never fails to amuse and entertain in equal measure.
