First look: Headlong's Pygmalion

Check out first look photos of Sam Pritchard’s upcoming production of George Bernard Shaw’s play

Headlong's latest production is an adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, directed by Sam Pritchard. The company team up with West Yorkshire Playhouse and Nuffield Theatres to produce the play, which opens this week in Leeds.

Pritchard's version uses sound and video technology to examine class and identity. The show is designed by Alex Lowde and has sound design from Ben and Max Ringham.

In a piece for WhatsOnStage, designer Lowde said: "All the equipment of Higgins' sonic experiment is visible and declared within the set. Microphones, megaphones, voice modulators, speakers, sound booths and subtitling all feature. It becomes a testing ground for Eliza as she embarks on a series of trials. Each act has a slightly different visual identity and style."

Pygmalion runs to 25 February at West Yorkshire Playhouse, before touring the UK.
