Alistair McGowan, Rula Lenska and Jamie Foreman star in this centenary year production of Shaw’s enduring masterpiece, Pygmalion, directed by Tony award-winning David Grindley.

The aristocratic and pompous Professor Henry Higgins 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.

The show is packed with a host of larger-than-life characters, including Alfred Doolittle and lovelorn Freddy Eynsford-Hill. Pygmalion is a classic British drama and is perhaps best known as the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady.

BAFTA award-winning Alistair McGowan is an impressionist, comic and writer, and has established himself as a formidable actor in recent years, receiving critical acclaim for several West End appearances.

Rula Lenska (Claudia in Coronation Street) joins Alistair to play Mrs. Higgins and Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Derek Branning in EastEnders) will play Alfred Doolittle. Rising star Rachel Barry will play Eliza. Rachel was most recently seen in the West End in Michael Grandage’s acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

“This is a highly engaging, clear and skilful production that deserves a wide audience.”

The Stage

“Bubbling with wit”

“David Grindley’s production proves a continuous delight.”

“Newcomer Rachel Barry is an absolute treat as Eliza, wonderfully funny, especially in the tea-party scene, but also touching in her vulnerability.”
