Hobson's ChoiceMarking the 100th anniversary of the first UK production of Harold Brighouse's classic comedy, Hobson's Choice comes to the Vaudeville Theatre this summer. Set in 1880s Salford, the play follows Cobbler Henry Horatio Hobson who has three daughters, all of whom he takes for granted, forcing them to work in his shop unpaid. When the oldest and plainest, Maggie, takes the initiative of marrying his best bootmaker, Willie Mossop, and setting up a rival business, Hobson gets his comeuppance, and the girls get their own back.

 

About Vaudeville Theatre

Designed by CJ Phipps, the Vaudeville is the third theatre to be built on this site. The current Vaudeville opened on 23rd February 1926 with a revue called RSVP. One of the theatre's major successes was in 1954 with the musical 'Salad Days', starring Julian Slade and Deborah Reynolds. More about Vaudeville Theatre
