Family comedy kicks-off new season
PORTISHEAD Players’ begin their new season with a family comedy.
Hobson’s Choice by Harold Brighouse tells the story of a daughter’s rebellion against the expectations of her overbearing, tightfisted and alcoholic father.
Hobson has his own boot-shop business and counts himself as someone important in the town. He is, therefore, put out when his daughter defies his wishes, marries a common working chap and beats him in his own line of business.
Set in the 1880s at a time of increasing trade union activity, the coming of the Labour party and stirrings of the suffragette, the comedy involves a family with very strong personalities.
Directed by John Fidell, the production will be staged at Somerset Hall in High Street from October 11-13, at 7.30pm.
