SIMON WARD JOINS PYGMALION

Simon Ward will play dustman Alfred Doolittle rascally father of Eliza Doolittle.  He joins a company led by Rupert Everett as Professor Henry Higgins and Kara Tointon as Eliza, and also features Diana Rigg as Mrs Higgins and Peter Eyre as Colonel Pickering. They’re joined by Peter Sandys Clarke (as Freddy Eynsford Hill), Marty Cruickshank and Roberta Taylor (Mrs Pearce).

Simon Ward’s recent theatre credits include The Madness Of King George III, The Winslow Boy, A Touch of Danger and An Ideal Husband, while his many TV and film credits include Judge John Deed, The Tudors, Wuthering Heights and his break out film role Young Winston.

George Bernard Shaw's 1901 play was famously the basis for Lerner and Loewe’s 1956 Broadway musical My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn. Philip Prowse’s revival originally ran from 9 July to 27 August 2010 at Chichester Festival, where the cast was led by Rupert Everett.

The West End transfer of the Chichester Festival Theatre production is presented by Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer for Nimax Theatres, Duncan C Weldon & Paul Elliot in association Carole Winter and Michael Edwards for MJE Productions and the Theatre Royal Haymarket Company.
