Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

April 24-27

Henry Higgins pompously bets he can transform a poor Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, into a duchess by coaching her in proper English speech. Pygmalion’s undertones criticize differences in class during the early 1900′s and remark on ideas concerning independent women.
