New contemporary production of Pygmalion explores local accents
Thursday, 20 April 2017
one hundred years after it was written, Nuffield Southampton Theatre’s
new co-production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the
20th century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, putting Southampton’s diverse
range of voices at the heart of the show.
Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world which can be digitally altered within seconds.
Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s new
staging promises to interrogate class identity and social mobility in
today’s Britain by utilising regional accents to ask - how much do our
voices still define who we are?
After a national tour, Pygmalion arrives at Nuffield Southampton
Theatres, Campus on April 25 and runs until May 13. It’s a co-production
from Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Headlong & West Yorkshire
