You’ve heard this story many times – mostly as a muscial about a Cockney flower girl who transforms. There is a flower girl in this one, but she’s an immigrant from Rwanda and this is London now. She meets an eager dialectian who makes her his “experiment” by teaching her to speak better English. Her mother (her father in the original story) is a hotel maid, with a wicked tongue and a strong urge to make a better life for herself. Eliza is trained in speech and manners and – eventually – is successful at passing. But “success” for the teacher is not the same as success for the student. The ending may not be what you expect.
