Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from Hobson's Choice: A Lancashire Comedy in Four Acts

It was the establishment in their midst of a theatre mainly devoted to the production of new plays which gave Manchester writers an impetus toward the drama. That their output took the form, to a great extent, of local plays is probably largely due to the fortunate chance that the theatre opened its doors at the time when the Irish Players, who gave the great stimulus to the Folk Drama, were in the meridian of their success. In any case, there can be no question that Lancashire life is so rich in individual traits and its verbal expression is ren dered so colourful by its uncompromising dialect that the dramatist found in it a rich-veined mine.

Buchbeschreibung Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Hobson s Choice: A Lancashire Comedy in Four Acts His most noteworthy examples of the one-act form are, perhaps, Spring in Bloomsbury, a realistic picture of the hopeless struggle of mediocrity as exemplified in a conscientious but ungifted young London clerk; it is a successful example of what has been defined as the drama of revolt The Price of Coal, a swift little play depicting in bold colours the uncertainties and hazards of the miner s life; it was originally written in Lancashire dialect, but for its first performance by the Glasgow Repertory Com pany it was transposed into the Scottish idiom, in which form it was played several hundred times in Great Britain as a curtain-raiser to Bunty Pulls the Strings, and, especially, lonesome-like, which belongs to the same genre as Hobson s Choice and in which the author reaches a very high development of the one-act form. The theme is simple. A shy young engineer, his sensitive and unconsciously poetic nature stunted intellectually by the rough atmos phere of factory life, is suffering from loneliness since the death of his mother a year before. Failing in his all too clumsy love affair, he turns to an old woman, disabled by rheumatism and about to be taken to the poorhouse, and adopts her as his mother. This is all, but the story is told so winningly, the dialogue is so vibrant with natural humour, and the denouement - the old woman s release from the shame of pauperism and the boy s rapture at the solution of his problem - is so neatly turned that the play is a masterpiece in miniature.

Buchbeschreibung Forgotten Books. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. Paperback. 132 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Reprinted from the American edition. ) DOUBTLESS because the majority of his earlier plays were produced at the Gaiety Theatre, Manchester, and, perhaps more particularly, because Hobson s Choice, his first long play to be given in A merica, is a study of Lancashire life, the work of Harold Brighouse seems to be too closely identified with that of Miss Horniman s Repertory Company. This is regrettable only insofar as it tends to give the impression that all his plays have a local character. Actually the sixteen plays, long and short, which have already been performed cover a wide range in setting and subject, and out of this number only five have a Lancashire background, and only six have been played by Miss Horniman s Company. A gain, it is a mistake to imagine that the Manchester Theatre in any way specializes in local plays. On the contrary, catholicity has always been its watchword. At its inauguration it had one prime object, the production of good plays irrespective of any kind or class into which they might be grouped. There was no special axe to be ground, no particular theory of production or playwriting to be exploited.
