My Fair Lady

Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe

I sold flowers. I didn't sell myself. Now you've made a lady of me, I'm not fit to sell anything else.'

Alan Lerner and Frederick Loewe's My Fair Lady tells the compelling story of the 'education' of Eliza Doolittle.

Doolittle is a fiery, intelligent young woman. She desires upward social mobility, but her strong East-End accent prevents it. To overcome this, she seeks elocution lessons from a paternalistic professor of phonetics, Henry Higgins, who then attempts to mould her into his ideal of class and womanhood. Eliza finds herself battling oppressive misogyny and is forced to re-evaluate her sense of self.

This production is a compelling re-interpretation of the classic tale, with an exhilarating combination of physical theatre, ensemble multi-roling, puppetry, and Loewe's well-loved score.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
