QTC Archives: 2017-2018 Season

February 16 – March 11, 2018

In this hilarious comedy of turn-of-the-century Lancashire manners, curmudgeonly cobbler Henry Hobson faces the ultimate choice: take a life with three daughters and keep them in his shop forever unmarried (and save staff wages and dowry money), or let them wed their sweethearts and leave him all alone (with no business). Eldest daughter Maggie has a plan to thread the bootmaking needle and she has inherited her fathers strong will to make it happen! QTC presents this slice-of-life play that the Guardian says has shades of King Lear and Taming of the Shrew as well-made and comfortable as a stout pair of boots. Directed by David Dubov with assistance from Washington Stage Guild director/actor Laura Giannarelli.

Featuring Matt Baughman, Logan Beveridge,  Jane Squier Bruns, Grant Cloyd, Nick Duckworth, Rebecca Ellis, Bill Hurlbut, Carolyn Kashner, Jean Miller, Meredith Richard and Andy White.

Hobson’s Choice is a winner, a production as dazzling as it is unexpected.

Harold Brighouse’s 1915 comedy Hobson’s Choice is, for its time, a savvy study of gender and class politics of the late 1880’s, and the cast… bring a colorful, lively and human dimension [to it].
