About the Show/Event
Information for Vanity Fair at Minack Theatre, Penzance (Play). Telling the tale of two school friends, Becky Sharp, a woman of considerable charms and undeniable flaws and naive Amelia Sedley. Vanity Fair ruthlessly exposes the foibles of nineteenth century society. Becky is a social climber supreme, irrestibly charming, vivacious and beautiful but also deceitful, unfaithful and manipulative. To what length will Becky go to secure herself a rich husband? The characters love and quarrel, live and die, get rich and are ruined. Passion, romance and betrayal sit side by side with honour, truth and loyalty.
