Hobson's Choice - A Play by Trinity Baptist College
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Come see the Fine Arts Department of Trinity Baptist College portray Hobson's Choice, a play by Harold Brighouse, the title taken from the popular expression, Hobson's choice — meaning no choice at all (from Thomas Hobson 1545–1631 who ran a thriving livery stable in Cambridge).
The story is set in Salford in 1880. It bears many resemblances to the stories of Cinderella and King Lear: Deceased mother; three daughters, two of whom are pretty and frivolous, the third of whom is smart and hardworking; a fairy godmother (Mrs. Hepworth).
