This world premiere comedy leaves the nutcrackers, misers and elves behind, and instead mashes Twelfth Night, Richard III and A Christmas Carol with historical inaccuracies and slanderous fabrications. In the spirit of Black Adder and Shakespeare in Love, Holiday of Errors (or Much Ado About Stockings) is an irreverent sendup that starts with Will Shakespeare and his trusty leading man, Dickie Burbage, on Christmas Eve 1593. The great Theatre is facing imminent closure as the plague rages through London. Find out what happens to Will and Dickie when they receive an urgent invitation from Queen Elizabeth to perform at Whitehall Palace. Learn More

Shaw is one of my favorite playwrights, and Pygmalion is one of my favorite plays. We were very excited at the prospect of seeing the production, and we were not one bit disappointed. The cast was marvellous. Their accents were impeccable, and their command of Shaw's wordy language was fabulous. The one piece of staging with which I disagreed was that of the first appearance of Alfred Doolittle. I thought he was constantly speaking upstage and therefore difficult to understand. His second appearance was much better blocked. A thoroughly delightful experience of a very well-produced play!
Following Sound Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed productions of The Belle of Amherst, Top Girls, and Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida among others, Pygmalion builds on STC’s tradition of presenting plays which center on the role of language in our lives.
Company members Frank Lawler as Henry Higgins and Carolyn Marie Monroe as Eliza Doolittle lead a cast of Seattle actors: Bill Higham, Daniel Guttenberg, Daniel Stoltenberg, Chris Hille, Lee Ann Hittenberg, Lindsay Lucas Arnold, Judy Sanders, Gianni Truzzi, and Kelsey Hamilton.
