Pygmalion

Arena Theatre presents George Bernard Shaw's

Pygmalion

Directed by Terri Jowett with permission from The Society of Authors

Professor of Phonetics, Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. The play is a sharp lampoon of the rigid British class system of the day and a comment on women's independence, packaged as a romantic comedy.
