Harold Brighouse's HOBSON'S CHOICE
Harold Brighouses Hobsons Choice
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.

Prized by its patrons for its intimate stagings, QTC specializes in productions of naturalistic plays about the truth and beauty in everyday or "quotidian" life. This boutique theater caters to those who enjoy pondering--and discussing with friends after the show--the meaning of a great play. Located within walking distance of Bethesda's renowned restaurant district, there are plenty of fine places to eat and/or drink before or after the play. On Saturdays and Sundays, parking is free in the public lot directly across from the Writer's Center, where QTC is the resident theater company. QTC is easily accessible by car or Metro (red line to Bethesda stop).
