by George Bernard Shaw


Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw’s feminist views.

“If you can’t appreciate what you’ve got, you’d better get what you can appreciate.”

George Bernard Shaw, Pygmalion
