Smock Alley Theatre 1662 presents
Smock Alley presents as its sixth in-house production, Bernard Shaw’s most popular and best loved play, Pygmalion.
“An Ibsen-inspired tale of a woman’s escape from class and gender oppression to a position of economic and personal freedom.”
Regarded as one of the greatest comedies in the English language for it’s sharp wit and subversiveness, this gloriously witty and enchanting story was the inspiration for the Oscar winning film ‘My Fair Lady’.
Eccentric linguistics Professor Henry Higgins attempts to transform unrefined flower seller Eliza Doolittle into a Duchess. For a bet.
This hilarious classic of world literature is a satirical take on society’s notions of class, money and the struggle for personal independence. The contemporary themes of feminism and gender prove that Shaw, one of Ireland’s Nobel Laureates, was light-years ahead of his time.
