Move Over Mrs Markham
To Sylvie it's the "goose" that she learned from Alistair, but to Philip, Joanna Markham's husband, it's "a variety of geese," and fifteen years of marriage is just about undone along with everything else in this wild zany free for all. Everything from Philip's business deals with Bow Wow Books and Alistair's near escape from Joanna's chiding seduction to the naked G.P.O. girl and the specter of scandal is hilarious. A lot of bed hopping occurs as Sylvie winds up taking Alistair on "walkies" and the amazing Mrs. Markham gets her man her husband! It all takes place in an elegant top floor London flat.
The cast is all set and into rehearsals.

Pygmalion - the original story of My Fair Lady.
Directed By Sarah Jeffs
Pygmalion. Pygmalion, romance in five acts by George Bernard Shaw, produced in German in 1913 in Vienna. It was performed in England in 1914, with Mrs. Patrick Campbell as Eliza Doolittle. The play is a humane comedy about love and the English class system.
Pygmalion opens with two linguists, Professor Higgins and Colonel Pickering, placing a bet on whether Professor Higgins can transform the life of flower girl Eliza Doolittle by helping her learn to speak proper English rather than her cockney dialect.
You may recognize the Pygmalion story as My Fair Lady. George Cukor’ academy award winning musical of 1964, was an adaptation of George Bernard Shaw 1913 play. Although the basic story line and underlying themes are the same, there are a number of differences. The most pronounced contrast is that my Fair Lady Has songs added to the dialogue. Furthermore, Pygmalion deals with the many of the social issues that were occurring during the Victorian Era in England, while My Fair Lady portrays what a person can do when they put forth a great effort while remaining true to themselves.
