Pygmalion

Is it possible to transform a simple London flower girl into a Duchess? Should Professor Henry Higgins even try?

'The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she’s treated.'

After all his reputation as an eminent phonetician is at stake.

This lovingly reworked adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s classic play takes a humorous yet poignant look at the hollowness of the British class system and explores the question … is it right to try and fundamentally change someone?

A tale of male manipulation and female self-discovery, this story is perhaps more relevant today than it was when first staged over a hundred years ago.

    The prizes will be City Arts Gift Vouchers for children (to 12 years old), teen (13 to 17 years old) and adult (18 +) categories.

    Date: Chalkfest 2022 is on 8 August 2022 – pay your competition entry either cash or card on the day up to 4pm

    Competition results will be published on their Facebook page on week commencing 22 August 2022. The images will be judged by their chairman and artist Diana Pattenden. The judge decision is final.
