Pygmalion

By George Bernard Shaw

The Horeshay Amatuer Dramatic Society, Shropshire

October 2018

Synopsis:

Based on classical myth, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion plays on the complex business of human relationships in a social world. Phonetics Professor Henry Higgins tutors the very Cockney Eliza Doolittle, not only in the refinement of speech, but also in the refinement of her manner. When the end result produces a very ladylike Miss Doolittle, the lessons learned become much more far reaching. The successful musical My Fair Lady was based on this Bernard Shaw classic.

The show was performed by the HADS at Horsehay, Shropshire from 11th to 13th Oct 2018.
