A witty retelling of the classic tale of a sculptor falling in love with his flawless creation, Pygmalion is a subtle attack on the British class system while highlighting Shaw’s feminist ideology.
Professor Higgins asserts to his friend, Colonel Pickering, that he can disguise a regular flower girl as a duchess just by teaching her the mannerisms and speech of the upper class society. In the course of the flower girl?s ?upgradation,? she transforms into a beautiful and accomplished lady. To Higgins, however, she remains a mere successful experiment leaving her out of both the worlds: the one she stepped out of and the one she never felt a part of.
