Henry Horatio Hobson is one of the greatest comic characters in English drama. Self-made man, shopkeeper, skinflint and boozer, he’s a tyrant to his daughters and a law unto himself. When Maggie, his eldest daughter, defies Hobson’s wishes by marrying Will Mossop, his own boot-maker, a battle of wills begins in which he stands to lose his customers, his girls and his pride, but ultimately it is Hobson’s choice.
2016 will mark the one hundredth anniversary of the first UK production of Harold Brighouse’s classic comedy, which is rich with laughter, wit and warmth.

Review: Hobson's Choice At The Vaudeville Theatre
Hobson's Choice, currently playing at London's Vaudeville Theatre, is quite an underwhelming show. It is an extremely gentle comedy which, if it was a TV series, would almost certainly be played on a Sunday afternoon. There is nothing in the show that makes a huge impact but, equally, there is nothing wrong with the show; it potters along pleasantly, just without the same kick that a lot of West End shows have. The show is celebrating its one-hundredth anniversary, so perhaps it has just dated a little.
