PYGMALION—written over a century ago—continues to provide hilarious entertainment and sharp social commentary that resonates today. A chance encounter between Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl, and Henry Higgins, a world expert on speech, inspires a bet that he can transform her into a lady. As Higgins strives to do the impossible, Shaw employs his trademark wit to examine issues of class and independence. Later adapted into the hit musical My Fair Lady, Shaw’s original tale is not one of romance, but of transformation and self-identity.
