Perhaps most popularly known as the inspiration for the musical My Fair Lady, Flat Earth Theatre presents George Bernard Shaw's classic satire Pygmalion -- exactly 100 years after its 1914 London premiere, newly adapted and directed by local fiction writer and Flat Earth company member Devon Jones. Set in vibrant and multicultural London today, it's the still-relevant battle-of-the-sexes and social-class comedy about arrogant dialect expert Henry Higgins, who makes a bet he can pass off Eliza Doolittle, a flower seller he meets in an Underground station, as a duchess in six months. But he doesn't count on his "creation" having a mind of her own. This irreverent reimagining of Pygmalion is the final production in Flat Earth's 2014 season, Literature in Dystopia. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Company artistic director Emil Kreymer has tautly staged the warfare — verbal and physical — of the play’s unabashedly dysfunctional family while never losing sight of its strikingly dark humor and ironies. Sean Stanco is a menacing standout as Joe … [and] Kelley Feetham has the right deceptive diffidence as daughter Dottie, who understands much more about family greed and antagonisms than her virginal past would suggest.” -MySouthEnd.com
“Emile Kreymer’s solid production for Zero Point Theater features Sean Stenco as the merciless hit man who doesn’t take kindly to being stiffed. (Stenco will make your blood run cold he’s so good.) … Kelley Feltham gives a deftly daft performance as the sister everyone thinks isn’t smart enough to figure out what’s going on.” -Boston Arts Review
