Pygmalion photoshoot[812] 200pxOver 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.

Pygmalion [823]

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 Playhouse.

Tickets are available from the Box Office 023 8067 1771 or online at nstheatres.co.uk
