About Hobson's Choice

"Get one wedding in a family, and it goes through the lot like measles"

From the cobbles of Lancashire, bombastic boot-shop owner Henry Horatio Hobson takes umbrage to his daughter’s intention to marry long-suffering boot-maker Willie Mossop. Through her determination, they wed, set up a rival establishment and orchestrate Hobson’s fall from grace. But it is Willie who triumphs in this unlikely love story, as newfound fortitude deals a resolution that is - Hobson’s choice.

Mark Benton takes the role of Henry Hobson, with Jodie McNee as his daughter, Maggie. Mark’s stage credits include performances at the RSC, National and Donmar, but he is perhaps best known for his television work, appearing in Waterloo Road, Northern Lights and the 2013 season of Strictly Come Dancing. Jodie has appeared in King Lear (Shakespeare’s Globe), Twelfth Night (Liverpool Everyman) and A Life of Galileo and Written on the Heart (RSC).

Director Nadia Fall’s recent credits include The Doctor’s Dilemma at the National Theatre.
