Show Synopsis

Overseen by a totalitarian police state, the people of London navigate the stations of the century-old Underground. Here, flower seller Eliza Doolittle meets the privileged Henry Higgins, a linguistic mastermind who makes a bet that, through lessons in speech and phonetics, he can pass her off as a duchess in six months. Contrasting cold Edwardian elitism with the vibrant and multicultural London of today, Flat Earth’s new adaptation throws Pygmalion’s themes of inequality into stark relief — and Liza and Higgins’ struggle between two far apart worlds will bring new meaning to “mind the gap.”

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
