About this show

Becky Sharp never blushes. As the wily Becky and her gentle friend Amelia scale social ladders and hurdle the whims of fate, only one question matters: How do you get what you want in life? A bright dance-hall pageant poking fun at all our pretenses, this new adaptation harnesses the frivolity of Thackeray's novel while recasting its (anti-)heroines as complex, vibrant women. Kate Hamill's (Sense and Sensibility) athletic, quick-witted, and distinctly unfussy retellings of great works of literature have been rapidly embraced with productions around the country.
