The plot of the play is based on a bet to transform a Cockney speaking Hungarian flower girl into a presentable lady prior to the grand ball, in essence, turn a pig’s ear into a silk purse. The story continues and promises a twister ending for the main characters, Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolitte.

“My Fair Lady” is a two-act play with numerous scenes, several outstanding musical numbers, and promises two hours of great entertaiment.
