Pygmalion – The Australian Shakespeare Company

Professor Higgins bets he can transform the life of a flower girl by helping her learn to speak proper English rather than her cockney dialect.

Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle. An insanely witty play that has the problem of our “common” English language at its heart. A razor-sharp exploration of social and gender inequality, transformation and the awakening of self-respect that remains relevant over one hundred years since the play’s first performance.

The play that inspired the classic musical, “My Fair Lady” and over one hundred years after it was written, see this production reimagined by The Australian Shakespeare Company.
