A battle of the sexes will be portrayed at a show at the New Vic Theatre this month.

Hobson's Choice by Harold Brighouse and directed by David Thacker is running at the theatre-in-the-round until Saturday, April 12.

Salford. 1880. Get ready for a battle of the sexes as a father and daughter go head to head in this classic comedy.

Widower Henry Hobson is struggling to handle his three grown-up daughters, each seeking a husband and an escape from the family boot-makers' shop. But with the domineering Hobson spending more time boozing in the Moonraker's Arms than on the business, the future of the firm and the family is in the hands of eldest daughter, the no-nonsense Maggie.

When she sets her sights on talented boot-maker Willie Mossop, it's the start of an unlikely partnership that threatens to ruin Hobson's trade. Reluctantly, he's forced to make a choice.

Tickets, priced from £12 to £21 (with concessions available) are available by calling 01782 717962 or visiting www.newvictheatre.org.uk.
