The Old Vic Theatre have announced a revival of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion starring Bertie Carvel and Patsy Ferran from September.
This autumn, the Olivier Award-winning duo of Bertie Carvel (The 47th, The Crown) and Patsy Ferran (Camp Siegfried, A Streetcar Named Desire) return to The Old Vic stage as Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.
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 and Tony Award-winner Richard Jones (Endgame, The Hairy Ape) directs 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.
Pygmalion will play at the Old Vic for a limited run from 06 September –28 October 2023.
