Pygmalion

On the Aurora Fox Mainstage
February 23-March 12, 2017

Written by George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Melody Duggan

One of George Bernard Shaw’s best known plays, Pygmalion is a wonderfully witty reworking of the classic Greek myth of Pygmalion and Galatea.

Inspiring the familiar musical, My Fair Lady, this story finds a bedraggled cockney flower girl struggling with the language of love, power, and identity. Shaw was one of the earliest and most vocal critics of classism and misogyny. So, in this story, Eliza Doolittle truly achieves what Henry Higgins, with his clueless bullying and inveterate old bachelordom has set her up for—independence!

This enduring and endearing play winds up as a fabulous pas de deux for two equals.
