Bury Theatre Workshop opens its 2014 season next month with Pygmalion, one of Bernard Shaw’s greatest plays.

As a result of a wager with Colonel Pickering, Professor Henry Higgins declares he can teach the lowly flower girl Eliza Doolittle to lose her cockney accent and speak like a lady.

As the story unfolds, Pygmalion is a funny, touching, unforgettable battle of wits between two of theatre’s most iconic characters. Shaw’s entertaining comedy, filled with humour and style, examines class, sexual politics and methods of education.
