‘I’ve a right to be here if I like. Same as you’
Eliza Doolittle aspires to more than selling flowers on the streets of Covent Garden. After a chance meeting with Professor Henry Higgins and Colonel Pickering, she finds herself the subject of a rash bet to pass her off as a lady amongst the great and the good of London society.
Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones (Endgame, The Hairy Ape) directs the Olivier Award-winning duo of Bertie Carvel and Patsy Ferran in George Bernard Shaw’s explosively funny, biting and subversive satire on class, as the ruthless linguist Higgins attempts to transform the brilliantly irrepressible Eliza – who breaks the mould he creates for her.
Don’t miss L&C’s wonderful Taheen Modak as Freddy Eynsford Hill in ‘Pygmalion’ at the Old Vic until 28th October.
