Pygmalion

By George Bernard Shaw

Production synopsis This classic comedy was inspired by the Greek myth of Pygmalion, a sculptor, who makes a statue of his ideal of womanhood and then falls in love with his creation.

Shaw’s witty and comedic masterpiece is his most popular play and became the basis of the popular musical ‘My Fair Lady’.

Henry Higgins is a teacher of phonetics, who accepts a
bet that simply by changing the speech of a Cockney flower seller he will be able, in six months, to pass her off as a duchess. The one thing he overlooks is that his ‘creation’
has a mind of her own.

Pygmalion may be set a century ago but the questions Shaw raises about identity, class and gender are just as relevant today.
