Hobson’s Choice by Harold Brighouse

20 July @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

“You’re a right old maid Maggie if ever there was one. You’re thirty and shelved.”

In this delightful and much-loved comedy old Henry Hobson the bootmaker runs a successful shop with a good reputation – or rather his three sensible daughters run it while Hobson grumbles and chides them, between his drinking bouts at the Moonraker’s Inn.

Maggie, the eldest Hobson daughter, sees a chance to better her prospects through a marriage – and business partnership – with Willie Mossop, their naïve but talented leatherworker. The unlikely match, and her father’s indignation, puts a damper on the wedding plans of Maggie’s sisters Alice and Vickey, who both have suitors, but Maggie has a plan to fix that too…

Brighouse’s hugely popular Mancunian comedy has entertained audiences for over a hundred years since its debut in 1915.
