When professor of phonetics Henry Higgins wages with Colonel Pickering that he could teach even a gutter-mouthed flower seller how to speak like a duchess, little does he expect that his social experiment will be riddled with difficulties, and that, behind her cockney parlance, the girl in question, Eliza Doolittle, has a mind, ideas and aspirations of her own. Things come to a crux when the creature starts to rebel against her creator - and the scene is set for a play that questions the class system, social appearances and the role of women in society. Universally regarded as Shaw' s most successful work for the stage, Pygmalion - here presented in its original 1916 version, with a wealth of extra material, including the author' s subsequent revisions and additions to the text - has spawned a great number of screen adaptations, among them the famous 1956 Broadway musical My Fair Lady, and shows ancient myth' s undiminishing ability to find new incarnations in modern life.
The author of over fifty works for the stage - among them Pygmalion and Man and Superman - the Irish playwright and political writer George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) was the leading dramatist of his generation and the recipient of the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature.
