Joseph Carter / Hobson’s Choice

Joseph Carter / Hobson’s Choice


We’re delighted to have the brilliant JOSEPH CARTER open tonight in HOBSON’S CHOICE, part of the season of plays at Southwold’s Theatre on the Coast 20 – 31 August.

Salford 1880. Hobson is a cobbler aiming to marry off his two youngest daughters. Maggie, his eldest at 30, is already an old maid – so she can stay at home and look after him! But Maggie has other ideas and finds herself a husband – and with him they open a rival shoe shop! First produced in 1916.

Joseph plays Fred and Albert.
