    The classic comedic play that inspired My Fair Lady
    The Studio Theatre Tierra del Sol presents a virtual reading of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 classic romantic comedy, Pygmalion. Eliza Doolittle, an ambitious flower girl, is picked up as a project by Henry Higgins, a world class phonetician. Professor Higgins makes a bet that he can transform Eliza from a street vendor to a high-class duchess through training in six months. But what happens when this experiment is through? Shaw's play examines class, highlights objectification of women, and pokes fun at the drawing room niceties of the period. It was the winner of the 1925 Nobel Prize and has inspired many adaptations; most notably the musical My Fair Lady.
