Vanity Fair
by Penfold Theatre Company

Oct. 03, 2021

A marvelous, incisive social satire that gleefully exposes the greed and corruption raging in England during the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars by tracing the changing fortunes of the scheming opportunist Becky Sharp, a poor but resourceful anti-heroine determined to reach the heights of society despite her station and her sex. This comic, sexy epic is considered the masterpiece of William Makepiece Thackeray, a friend and contemporary of Charles Dickens. Vanity Fair’s subversive attack on the hypocrisy of an avaricious world resonates 150 years later with implications for our own times.

Directed by Rosalind Faires

Vanity Fair will feature: Crystal Caviel, Valoneecia Tolbert, Nadine Mozon, Kate Taylor, and Indigo Rael.
