Why See Vanity Fair?

Plays

A Rollicking Period Romp

Tony and Obie Award-winning theatre visionary Pam McKinnon celebrates her inaugural year as the new artistic director of the renowned American Conservatory Theater with an exciting season of culturally diverse works from bold new voices. Fresh from its critically lauded Off-Broadway run in the Spring of 2017, Kate Hamill's period adaptation of the Thackeray classic Vanity Fair rounds off the season with the scintillating tale of social climber Becky Sharp.

Set during the Napoleonic wars, the story follows the determined scheming of Miss Sharp, a feisty, intelligent young woman who has neither wealth or social status at the start of her ambitious journey to the upper echelons of polite society. With nothing but her wits and a gift for sparkling satire, Becky makes her ascent by enticing and seducing wealthy men with a dogged persistence that leaves many by the wayside, marking her as one of literature's most fascinating picaresque anti-heroines.
