The Nerja Players: Hobson’s Choice
This well-known comedy has long been a favourite with theatre companies and audiences alike. Written by Harold Brighouse it was first produced in America in 1915 and at the Apollo theatre, London, the following year. In 1954 it was made into a BAFTA Award winning film, starring Charles Laughton as Hobson with John Mills and Prunella Scales in her first film role.
Set in Salford, near Manchester, in 1880, it features the larger-than-life character, Henry Hobson, a prosperous bootmaker and his three daughters. Despite the Victorian setting the play resonates with current attitudes as Hobson’s overbearing attitude to his daughters and declared misogyny are tamed by the feisty eldest of the three, Maggie. At the same time she takes the timid and self-effacing Willie Mossop in hand and moulds him into a confident, self-assured and successful business man.
Come and find out how Hobson’s Choice (Take it or Leave it!) affects the lives of these entertaining characters.

Looking for a family: Are you worried about recent spates of burglaries in the Campo? Are you worried about the bogus gas men calling? Do you live in an isolated villa? If yes I have the perfect solution for you, Bonny!!
Bonita( Bonny for short) is 1 year and 2 months old she was rescued from the dog pound in Baza by Amethyst animal rescue. She has been living with me her foster carer for 5 months whilst she recuperated from a leg wound and gained weight. She is now healthy and happy, she is free of Mediterranean diseases. She understands basic commands and is young enough to still receive some more training. She is house trained.
Bonny is very good at defending her home. She can be left on her own in the house whilst you go about your business with no problem. In return she would be happy in a Campo home with a garden or land so she can have a good run around. She is microchipped and has her passport.
So if you want peace of mind and would like to meet Bonny you can contact me via WhatsApp on 625319323 or
