Performance: Vanity Fair
Playwright Kate Hamill breathes new life into William Makepeace Thackeray’s classic novel. Vanity Fair follows anti-hero Becky Sharp and her meek friend Amelia. Becky, a penniless woman with limitless ambition, uses her romantic entanglements and risky business deals to climb the social ladder while the privileged Amelia already sits atop it. But in a society that ignores both women because of their femininity, they must work together to achieve their goals, making Vanity Fair as funny as it is relevant to our modern times.
