See it first
Friday 15 April 2011
BAFTA nominee Rupert Everett (St Trinian’s, An Ideal Husband) stars opposite Kara Tointon (EastEnders, Strictly Come Dancing) and Diana Rigg in this dazzling production of one of theatre’s most entertaining explorations of sexual politics and class restrictions.
Egocentric Professor of Phonetics, Henry Higgins, makes a bet with his friend, Colonel Pickering, that he can transform the manners and speech of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and pass her off as a society lady.
Pygmalion remains one of the most popular of George Bernard Shaw’s plays, full of his trademark wit, style and provocative insights, as well as a beguiling and enduring humour.
