Cheap Hobson's Choice tickets at the Vaudeville Theatre


The Show

Harold Brighouse's classic comic love story is the tale of a Salford cobbler with three unruly daughters that owes more than a little to King Lear and Cinderella. The homage is purely intentional. 

Martin Shaw is one of the UK’s favourite actors, well-known for starring in Inspector George Gently, Judge John Deed, and The Professionals on television. His stage roles include Saturday, Sunday, Monday opposite Laurence Olivier; he was Tony Award nominated for An Ideal Husband on Broadway and won a Drama Desk award. Recent West End credits include A Man for All Seasons and Twelve Angry Men.  

Christopher Timothy is best-known for his roles as James Herriot in All Creatures Great and Small and Mac in the BBC series Doctors. 

Artistic director of the Chichester Festival Theatre since 2006, where his acclaimed productions have included Taken at Midnight, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui and Singin’ in the Rain, Jonathan Church has recently been appointed Artistic Director of Sydney Theatre Company. 

The Story

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.

Playing Henry Hobson, the bibulous bully of the title, Martin Shaw gives a performance that is at once barnstorming and, as the production arrives in the West End after a tour, too often suspended in its own dyspeptic bubble.
