A major rivial of one of the best loved plays of the 20th Century.
Alistair McGowan leads an established company of actors in a 100th anniversary year production of Shaw's enduring masterpiece directed by Tony Award-winning David Grindley.
Pygmalion is perhaps best known as the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady. The aristocratic and pompous Professor Henry Higgins (made famous by Rex Harrison) makes a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering that he can transform the manners and speech of Cockney flower girl ELiza Doolittle and pass her off as a society lady. Packed with a host of larger than life characters including Alfred Doolittle and lovelorn Freddy Eynsford-Hill, Pygmalion remains one of Shaw's most popular plays and a classic British drama; full of his trademark wit, style and humour.
Bafta Award-winning Alistair McGowan stars in this major new rival of Shaw's enduring masterpiece. His prolific career as an impressionist, comic and writer also includes an Olivier Award-nominated performance for Little Shop of Horrors. Rula Lenska joins Alistair to play Mrs Higgins and Jamie Foreman will play Alfred Doolittle. Rula is one of our leading stage and television actors with appearances in all major TV series including her role as Claudia in Coronation Street. Jamie Foreman has over thirty film credits to his name including Layer Cake and Polanski's Oliver Twist. His television credits include Derek Branning in Eastenders.
