Pygmalion - A satiric comedy by Bernard Shaw

1st September Protected content 26th October Protected content

The snobbish and pompous phonetics professor, Henry Higgins makes a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering that he can train an unrefined low-class outcast, Eliza Doolittle, to pass as a society lady by teaching her to assume an appearance of gentility. He believes the most important element to be impeccable speech. However, he discovers that the bet is not an easy one, as personalities, romance, and socially significant issues get in the way. Though difficult and frustrating for both at first, the lessons soon begin to work wonders, and produce results that neither predicted. The play is a sharp satire about social class, human behaviour and relations between the sexes clothed most often in comedy and witty dialogue.

A superbly penned, radiantly witty, and still-urgent play. New York Times
