Vanity Fair, Friday 8 July
“Yes, this is Vanity Fair; not a moral place certainly; nor a merry one, though very noisy.”
Often cited as one of English Literature’s greatest treasures, Vanity Fair is roustabout of intrigue, survival and sexual politics which sees the conniving Becky Sharp and sweet-natured Emmy Sedley tumbling their way through the exploitative and hazardous playground of the early nineteenth century upper class.
Adapted for the stage by Declan Donnellan and directed by Paul Chesterton, Thackeray’s hilarious satire is destined to thrill audiences this summer.
It will have been 3 years since the students of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School have visited us with one of their touring productions so we can’t wait to welcome them back in July with this production of Vanity Fair. The alumni of this prestigious theatre school include: Olivia Colman, Naomie Harris, Jeremy Irons, Pete Postlethwaite, Miranda Richardson, Dame Patricia Routledge, Sir Patrick Stewart, Mark Strong and Gene Wilder so the odds of you seeing a star of the future in this production are pretty high!
