‘You have no idea how frightfully interesting it is to take a human being and change her into a quite different human being…’ - Higgins
For the first time in its history, the Abbey Theatre is delighted to present George Bernard Shaw’s most popular play, Pygmalion. With all the parallels of a modern day X-Factor, an impoverished flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, is taken in hand by linguistics professor, Henry Higgins, and turned into a lady. For a bet. Will she pass for a lady? If so – what happens then?
Shaw’s play is a sharp satire about class, a spirited comment on women’s independence and a quick witted comedy.
With full period costumes, this production is sure to entertain you thoroughly and leave you with food for thought…
Now on the Abbey stage until Saturday 11 June
Monday – Saturday evening 7.30pm,
