Galatea by Lawrence Aronivitch
A modern re-telling of the Pygmalion story that explores the dynamics of relationships and touches on themes such as love, loyalty, infidelity, marriage, class and art. Harry, a painter, invites a young model, Eli, to pose for him. Harry’s attraction to Eli disturbs both Harry’s longtime partner Georgie and Eli’s boyfriend Freddie. The play draws on the parallels and contrasts between the one couple, who are older, intellectual, academic and artistic; and the other, who are young and working class.
