PYGMALION: A Romance in Five Acts
by George Bernard Shaw
Best known in popular culture as My Fair Lady and rooted in ancient Greek mythology, Pygmalion is a classic tale of nobility meeting poverty. Phonetics specialist Professor Henry Higgins, along with colleague Colonel Pickering, bets he can transform flower salesgirl Eliza Doolittle into a socialite and "proper" lady merely by eliminating the cockney accent that signals her "inferior" social status. In this comedic collision of "different worlds," these intelligent and determined characters wrestle with social norms and wind up forming a unique, heartwarming bond.
