Pygmalion at Liverpool Playhouse, City Centre 7 — 11 March 2017 Tickets from £10.00 — Book now

Over one hundred years after it was written, a radical new co-production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the 20th Century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world where  we can be digitally altered within seconds. Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s fearless new staging interrogates class identity and social mobility in Britain today and asks us – how much do our voices still define who we are?
