Pygmalion comes to Leeds
Date Posted: 05/03/14
Written by George Bernard Shaw, Pygmalion will be coming to Leeds from April 1st to 5th for its centenary year production.
A humorous and dramatic observation on gender and class, the well-known drama features Alistair McGowan in the lead role.
The story follows the tale of two pompous English gentlemen Higgins and Colonel Pickering who bet on whether it’s possible to make a Cockney speaking girl Eliza Doolittle, into a ladylike figure. The play comments on the prejudice and hierarchical structure of the times.
Multi-talented and BAFTA award-winning McGowan is known for his impressions, humour and writing, and after appearing in a variety of acting roles has become well-respected in the West End and farther afield. Acting in Little Shop of Horrors, he also became an Olivier Award nominee.
Why not see the play during a relaxing hotel break in Leeds and see what else the city has to offer?
