This edition also includes a bonus new play, The ‘B’ Word. Written by and starring Alistair McGowan, the play describes the scandalous opening night of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion - the first time that the word 'bloody' was used on the British stage. The production also created a passionate love-hate triangle of Shaw (McGowan), his leading man, Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree (Richard McCabe) and his leading lady, the irrepressible Mrs Patrick Campbell (Charlotte Page), who played the 19-year-old Eliza Doolittle at the age of 49.
