Synopsis of the play...

In 1880's Salford, prosperous bootmaker Henry Hobson is left a widower with three uppity daughters, two of whom already have beaus they would like to marry, but cannot until they have a dowry, which Henry is too mean to stump up for, and also not until the eldest daughter, Maggie, who is a practical no nonsense woman, who wears the trousers, is promised in marriage. Maggie defies Hobsons wishes and a battle of wits ensues where he stands to lose his customers, his girls and his pride. Ultimately it is Hobson's choice.
