The science of speech. That’s my profession. I can place any man within six miles. I can place him within two miles in London. Sometimes within two streets.

Over one hundred years after it was written, this radical new production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the 20th century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world where people can be digitally altered within seconds. Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s fearless new staging interrogates class identity and social mobility in Britain today and asks us: how much do our voices still define who we are?

Headlong returns to Oxford Playhouse following recent productions of 1984, The Absence of War and Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme.

 

Duration: 2 hours 15mins with interval

Presented by Headlong, Nuffield and West Yorkshire Playhouse

By Bernard Shaw

Directed by Sam Pritchard
