A short followup to the last post— tickets for Pygmalion are now on sale! From the event description:
Flat Earth Theatre’s reimagining of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion sets the classic story in the century-old London Underground. This time-shifted production juxtaposes Edwardian stoicism against the city’s radical, multicultural working people. Highlighting the exploitation of Eliza Doolittle by men claiming to have her best interest at heart, Pygmalion’s themes of social and cultural inequality remain pertinent even a century following its 1914 West End premiere. Rarely has a piece of classic theatre been more relevant to the present day, and rarely has a comedy of manners carried such a sense of deep political urgency.
