The Crescent Theatre Company presents

Hobson's Choice

by Harold Brighouse

11 - 25 Nov in the Studio

There will be an After Dark discussion following the 19:45 performance on Fri, 24th Nov. Free to ticket holders.

Brighouse’s comedy is set in Salford, 1880, where bootmaker Henry Hobson, a pillar of local society, fond of his drink but miserly and tyrannical at home, runs a prosperous business. A widower, he steadfastly refuses to countenance the marriage of his three daughters – all of whom work unwaged in the family business. It is the determined Maggie, the eldest and ostensibly the ‘least marriageable’, who ruthlessly takes matters into her own hands – with devastating consequences for her father.
