One flower girl. Two experts. Free lessons. Six months. Duchess required.

Over one hundred years after it was written, a radical new co-production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the 20th Century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

‘The science of speech. That’s my profession. I can place any man within six miles. I can place him within two miles in London. Sometimes within two streets.’

Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world where we can be digitally altered within seconds.

Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s fearless new staging interrogates class identity and social mobility in Britain today and asks us - how much do our voices still define who we are?

See what audiences are saying.
