WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Vanity Fair is set in a society that cares more for good birth and good manners than for skill. The play's protagonist, Becky Sharp — poor, plain, and devilishly clever — is determined to defy the odds through risky romantic entanglements, shady business practices, and social climbing at any cost. She won't stop until the world lies at her feet. Adapted by Kate Hamill (Sense and Sensibility) from the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair exposes a world where surfaces are everything, virtue is only skin deep, and every 15 minutes of fame comes with heart-pounding risk.
