Role Eliza
Producer Garrick Theatre Director Philip Prowse

Kara played the notorious leading role of Eliza Doolittle in the West End transfer of Philip Prowse's production that originated at the Chichester Festival Theatre.

Eliza is the original ladette to lady; a cockney flower seller taken under the tutelage of the upstanding Professor Higgins  for a bet and fashioned into a society belle with perfect received pronunciation.

The production ran for four month in the West End with Alistair McGowan taking over from Rupert Everett in the role of Professor Higgins.


In her West End debut, Tointon gives an extremely assured performance...She captures perfectly the arc of Eliza's development. Michael Billington
The Guardian

A terrific West End stage debut...There is a warmth and vulnerability shown here that marks her out as an actress of great potential. Charles Spencer
The Telegraph

Tointon...is perfectly in command of the part Kate Kellaway
