Vanity Fair

About the Show

Written by Gwyneth Hughes (Dark Angel), this new adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s VANITY FAIR stars Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One) as Thackeray’s timeless heroine Becky Sharp.

Thackeray’s literary classic is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and follows Becky Sharp as she attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society in a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having. Becky’s story of “villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting and dancing” takes her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes as she goes.
