An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Production

Egocentric Professor of Phonetics Henry Higgins makes a bet with his friend, the amiable Colonel Pickering, that he can transform cockney flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a woman as poised and well-spoken as a duchess. His ambition is that she mix with London's high society and make a fine marriage. But the ladylike, yet still sassy, Eliza is more than a match for her tutor...

One of Bernard Shaw's most popular plays, Pygmalion is a charming and provocative comedy that examines the roles of men and women and limitations of education and social class. Pygmalion was the inspiration for the musical, My Fair Lady.

Due to unforeseen circumstances original cast member, John Branwell is unable to appear in this production. At very short notice, James Quinn will play the role of Alfred Doolittle.
