Shaw's Hertfordshire home marks Pygmalion centenary

One of stage and screen's best-loved leading ladies is turning 100 years old.

Eliza Doolittle was famously played by Audrey Hepburn in the 1964 musical film My Fair Lady but the character was created by Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, for his play 'Pygmalion'.

They play was first performed in London in April 1914.

To mark the occasion actors will do readings of the script at Shaw's former home near Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire.

Shaw was born in Ireland, and moved to Hertfordshire in 1906. Before he died, aged 94, he passed his house to the National Trust.

It was Happy Days and it's now been made into a musical starring Eurovision icon Cheryl Baker, former Emmerdale star Ben Freeman and popstar Heidi Range.

They're appearing on stage in Norwich, Southend, Cambridge and Milton Keynes.
