ABOUT THE PLAY - Hobson's Choice:

Salford, 1880. Widower Henry Hobson is struggling to handle his three grown-up daughters, each seeking a husband and an escape from the family-run boot makers shop. But with Hobson spending more time at the Moonraker's pub than on the business of boots and clogs, the future prosperity of the family firm is held in the hands of his eldest daughter Maggie. Her strength of character, wisdom and no-nonsense integrity is in sharp contrast to the bombastic self- importance of her father and the snobbery of her sisters.

When Maggie sets her sights on talented boot maker Willie Mossop it's the beginning of an unlikely partnership that could threaten the future of Hobson's trade. A battle of the sexes looks set to commence as father and daughter go head to head in this classic Lancashire comedy.

Directed by David Thacker. And starring Christopher Villiers and Natalie Grady.
