George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion


London flower seller Eliza Doolittle hopes to make her way up in the world.

Phonetics expert Professor Henry Higgins believes all she requires to do that is a bath, a nice frock, and aristocratic elocution. He makes a bet with a colleague that he can affect her transformation, and succeeds beyond even his own hopes. But has the professor any real grasp of the social and emotional implications of his experiment?

Shaw’s classic play, critiquing the class system and the patriarchy, remains as pertinent and charming today as when it was first performed. Tempo's new production corrals a glistening array of talent for a fresh, vigorous and thought-provoking production.
