Hobson's Choice

Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th May

FHODS is pleased to announce that the shop doors will soon open on a new production of Hobson’s Choice, the well-loved, classic northern comedy.

However, to present a fresh view of the play and make it more relevant to a modern audience, we are resetting to 1966, another period of significant social change, especially for women, which sowed the seeds of women’s lib and the feminist movement.
