An all star cast in Pygmalion at Leeds Grand Theatre

George Bernard Shaw’s famous play makes its Yorkshire premiere this April.

Pygmalion

Alistair McGowan reprises his West End role as Henry Higgins in a new production of George Bernard Shaw’s best-known play which makes its Yorkshire premiere at Leeds Grand Theatre next month.

Packed with a host of larger than life characters Pygmalion remains one of the most popular of Shaw’s plays and is perhaps best known as the inspiration for the Lerner and Loewe musical My Fair Lady.

The aristocratic and egocentric Professor of Phonetics Henry Higgins makes a bet with his friend, the amiable Colonel Pickering that he can transform the manners and speech of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and pass her off as a lady in society.

Jamie Foreman (Eastenders’ Derek Branning/Layer Cake/Polanski’s Oliver Twist) joins Alistair McGowan to play Alfred Doolittle and Rula Lenska will play Mrs Higgins. Rachel Barry plays Eliza; she was most recently seen in Michael Grandage’s acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the West End.
