Event description

“You have no idea how frightfully interesting it is to take a human being and change her into a quite different human being by creating a new speech for her.”

Minola Theatre proudly presents Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw’s classic comedy of class, language and gender politics. When egocentric phonetics professor Henry Higgins meets Cockney flower-seller Eliza Doolittle, he isn’t expecting to take her on as a pupil. But when Eliza comes knocking at his door, he spies an irresistible challenge: can he construct a duchess out of the raw materials of a girl from the gutter?

As provocative now as it ever was, Pygmalion cuts like a razor through the façade of social structures, reminding us that we are all players in a cultural game, and asking a crucial question: is class a matter of breeding, or a matter of integrity? Deftly interweaving comedy, drama and social commentary, this show will make you laugh and make you think in equal measure.
