"You have no idea how frightfully interesting it is to take a human being and change her into a quite different human being…”
With all the parallels of a modern reality-show makeover, an impoverished flower seller is taken in hand by a linguistics professor. He attempts to change her accent and pass her off as the epitome of English society—for a wager. A sharp satire on class and women’s independence, Shaw’s century-old masterpiece presents an uproarious and poignant battle of wits between two of theatre’s most iconic characters.
