Alistair McGowan writes and stars in a play about the scandalous opening night of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion - the first time the word "bloody" was used on the British stage.

The production also created a passionate love-hate triangle of Shaw, his leading man, Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree and his leading lady, the irrepressible Mrs Patrick Campbell, who played the 19-year-old Eliza Doolittle at the age of 49.
