This year, we are presenting Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw. We will be performing on the May 6st 2021 at the Fécule Festival, held this year at the Vortex in Lausanne.
About the play
Eliza Doolittle, a young florist, is despised and neglected because of her dialect and appearance. She meets Professor Higgins, a famous linguist, who bets to have her passed for a duchess. Higgins tries to turn Eliza into a lady of the highest London society and to shape her into the ideal woman. The result of her training is not, however, what they expected.
Playing with people in this way sometimes has serious consequences…
“The great secret, Eliza, is not having bad manners or good manners or any other particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls: in short, behaving as if you were in Heaven, where there are no third class carriages, and one soul is as good as another.”
