Shaw was said to be very happy with the ending to Pygmalion, but after receiving complaints about its inconclusiveness he wrote an epilogue saying what happened to all the characters. What do you think happened to the Henry/Eliza relationship the day after the play finished and beyond. I would be very interested in your thoughts. A.W.

Happy new year!

Here are a few rehearsal pictures to whet the appetite:

And finally:

We can now confirm that this year's Summer production will be Shakespeare's A Comedy of Errors. Audition dates will be announced shortly, keep an eye on the website for details.
