My Fair Lady: How far would you go, stoop to keep the flame burning?

Love is a beautiful language but can mean that the person you fall in or claim to be in love with is nothing short of tender, warm and decisively ideal in terms of character and language.

Watching My Fair Lady leaves you with some food for thought on how far you would go or stoop to keep the flame burning. 110 years later, Bernard Shaw’s musical play still reflects possible realities when two lovers from different social classes come together but one remains a scorner, a trait that ends up leaving love to bleed.

Professor Henry Higgins, acted by Diamond Lwazi, is glad to teach and mentor Eliza Doolittle, played by Tayo Shonubi, into a lady accustomed to the ways of society’s high fliers.

The transformative journey draws him close and closer to her and he eventually falls in love. From a nobody to somebody and with somebody but the price of loving the professor is an arduous journey.

But it is a play that’s presented with a good dose of humour laced in the rich dialogue and songs as the cast of talented actors and actresses- alumni of King’s College Budo- put up a spirited performance.

The play is directed by Aganza Kisaka, a poet and actress who, along with her assistant, Karen Hasahya Kimuli, are using the beautiful piece of artistry as an entertainment vehicle also to tackle mental health and its related challenges.

Compliments are in order for Pamela Atukunda Akiiki and John Samuel Kisekka for a visually appealing and dynamic stage and Guy Jairus Zziwa whose creative hands on the costume are estimably unique and bring out the Victorian attire throughout the approximately three-hour stage theatre production.

The cast is an ensemble of career professionals who have come together for their love of the arts.
