Maggie and Will in Hobson's Choice

Maggie and Will are two of the main characters in "Hobson's Choice".
Maggie works in her fathers shop for very little pay at all, as does
Will, who is a shoemaker for Hobson and is very good at his job.
Maggie married Will (being very dominant for a woman in those days)
and they left Hobson's shop to start up a shoe business of their own
because of the way Hobson exploits them. Will and Maggie eventually
fall in love and Maggie manages to get her father to pay for her two
sisters weddings and because of Hobson's drinking problem they decide
to join business with Hobson so that Will can manage the shop and
Maggie can manage Hobson. The play is set in the Victorian times

Maggie throughout the play has used her intellect and reasoned
thinking to get ahead. This makes Maggie not only popular, but also,
amusing as she is persistent which reflects on the play. In act one of
the play she almost forces Albert to buy boots that he really doesn't
want to buy

...urns over and faces the door.
In a minute Maggie opens the door. She is holding a candle and is in a
plain calico night-dress she comes to Will, shines the light on him,
takes him my the ear and returns to the bedroom."

Will is popular because of some of the things he says for example is
over use of the phrase "by gum!" when he is surprised makes us still
remember what he was like in the beginning.

Maggie and Will both appeal to a modern audience because of their
kindness, optimism, humour and respect which brings the play together.
