Bernard George Shaw - one of the most poignant in thought, paradoxical playwrights of the twentieth century. His plays, as a rule, had a bright stage story, a noisy response from the viewer and critics: "The profession of Mrs. Warren", "The House where the hearts are broken", "Devil's Apprentice", "The Millionaire". Pygmalion was very often staged in Russian theaters. The name of the play Shaw is associated with the famous myth of Pygmalion, the tsar and the tyrant, who rejected all the women around him. He himself creates a beautiful female statue and falls in love with her. The playwright lifelong solved the riddle of the relationship between man and woman. The nature of women's feelings, the motives for doing it seemed mysterious to him. "Let only a woman into her life, and you will surely see that she needs one thing, and you are completely different."
In the scenography of the play, ideas and surreal images of Nikas Safronov's paintings were used.
"A lady differs from a flower girl not by how she keeps herself, but by how she is kept with herself."
She is a poor saleswoman of violets, a beautiful girl with a strong character.
He is a professor of phonetics, who behaves capriciously in everyday life like a little child.
And wonderful London, where the most incredible meetings are possible!
The professor decided to teach the girl to speak in her native language correctly and cleanly, not worse than an English lady. His friend, Colonel, does not believe that he will succeed.
But the professor is ready for anything! He even will settle the girl at home. True, it will have to be washed, changed and taught to behave as it should be in a decent society.
He would know how this story ends! The old bachelor never even thought about marriage.
The girl was kind and friendly. But her relatives, especially the scavenger father, can make anyone crazy!
An extremely amusing and comical comedy about English stiff aristocrats and resourceful poor.
Bernard Shaw is probably right. "And what is life, not a chain of inspired recklessness?"
