Exclusive: The Old Vic has released brand-new rehearsal shots for its upcoming revival of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

Directed by Richard Jones (Endgame, Alcina), the cast is led by award-winners Bertie Carvel (as Professor Henry Higgins) and Patsy Ferran (as Eliza Doolittle).

Completing the company are Lizzy Connolly (as Clara Eynsford Hill), Grace Cookey-Gam (as Mrs Eynsford Hill), Steven Dykes (as Ensemble), Michael Gould (as Colonel Pickering), Liz Jadav (as Ensemble), Penny Layden (as Mrs Pearce), Sylvestra Le Touzel (as Mrs Higgins), John Marquez (as Alfred Doolittle), Taheen Modak (as Freddy Eynsford Hill), Caroline Moroney (as Ensemble), Rohan Rakhit (as Ensemble) and Kieran Smith (as Aristid Karpathy).
