The Pygmalion Project

Devised by Jenny Wren Productions

"You have no idea how frightfully interesting it is to take a human being and change them into a quite different human being… It’s the most absorbing experiment I ever tackled."

Jenny Wren Productions take the Pygmalion model and give it a 2009 twist. The company that brought The Canterbury Tales and Dr Korczak’s Example to the Studio now recreate the story of Eliza and Higgins – with a few surprises thrown in. With all the wit, wordplay and wisdom of the original, The Pygmalion Project is a work in progress…

"I shall make a duchess of this draggle-tailed guttersnipe."

With apologies to George Bernard Shaw!
