“Yes, this is Vanity Fair; not a moral place certainly; nor a merry one, though very noisy.”
Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s acting and technical cohort present a thrilling and nostalgic production Thackeray’s hilarious satire, Vanity Fair.
Set in the early 1980s New Romantics scene of London, follow wannabe ‘It Girl’ Becky Sharp and her sweet-natured friend, Amelia Sedley, as they scale the heady heights of society and hustle through the hazardous playground for the rich and beautiful.
This roustabout of pleasure, survival, gender politics, tall tales and bigger hair is adapted for the stage by Declan Donnellan and directed by Paul Chesterton.
