George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion

George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion

GEORGE Bernard Shaw’s most popular play – the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady – comes to Limelight Theatre this October.

Directed by Jacob Turner, Pygmalion is the classic story of a young, lower-class Cockney girl who, in a short time, is transformed into a refined lady of the upper class.

The play, first performed in 1913, lampoons the British class system of the day and provides countless comedic moments.

In addition to being the inspiration for My Fair Lady, there have been countless modern parodies including episodes of The Simpsons.
