About Vanity Fair
From acclaimed playwright Kate Hamill (2017 Playwright of the Year, Wall Street Journal) comes a rollicking new stage adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s classic 19th-century novel that pops with 21st-century spirit.
Ambitious Becky Sharp may not have been born with wealth or status, but she’s determined to attain both—at any cost. Armed with fierce wit and calculating charm, Becky forges her own path through London’s high society, dealing herself into a game she was never invited to play.
Displaying the celebrated audacity and verve that she brought to her adaptation of "Sense & Sensibility," Hamill conjures an inventive and lively period drama featuring one of literature’s original “nasty women.”
