THE OAKVILLE PLAYERS

Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion is based on the classic Greek myth of a sculptor who creates the perfect woman. This classic play also serves as the basis for the hugely successful musical My Fair Lady.  The snobbish and intellectual Professor Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can take the Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, from the gutters and pass her off as a society lady. The end result is a very ladylike Miss Doolittle and the lessons learned are a bit more far-reaching. As the Professor discovers, his pupil has ideas of her own.
