George Bernard Shaw's 'Pygmalion' to be brought to Swindon stage

By Tyler Ody

This September, DOT Productions will be bringing their adaptation of the George Bernard Shaw classic to Swindon’s Art Centre.

The performance will take place on 3 September at 7.30pm.

A spokesperson for the event said: “Will professor of phonetics Henry Higgins transform Eliza Doolittle enough to convince upper-class society that she is one of them, or will Eliza never forget who she really is?

“Pygmalion explores the English class system with all of its petty attitudes and posturing. Full of wit and wisdom Shaw exposes the hollowness at the heart of that society, but it is not just about accents or class. It is about the battle of the sexes, of control!”

2022 marks DOT Productions’ 12th year of touring, and their five-actor production of this well-loved classic is said to be unmissable.

Tickets for the performance are priced at £16, and can be booked online at
