Pygmalion remains one of the most popular stories - but mainly in the medium of the musical; the evergreen My Fair Lady. But much of the charm and wit comes from the words and timing in Shaw's original play. Here are the characters of professor Higgins, his friend Colonel Pickering, and their charge, Eliza Doolittle. Naxos AudioBooks expands its drama section with a new digital recording with Anton Lesser in the role of Higgins, Lucy Whybrow as Eliza and Geoffrey Palmer as Pickering. Also in the cast are David Burke as Doolittle and Hannah Gordon as Mrs Higgins. Directed by John Tydeman, this delightful comedy is presented in its original play version, with the extended narrations setting the background and concluding the drama - a device perfectly suited to audiobook.
