Village Rep presents the regional premiere of this delightful adaptation of a literary classicby Kate HamillBased on the novel by William Makepeace ThackerayDirected by Robbie Thomas Becky Sharp never blushes. As the wily Becky and her gentle friend Amelia scale social ladders and hurdle the whims of fate, only one question matters: how do you get what you want in life? A bright dance hall pageant poking fun at all our pretenses, this new adaptation harnesses the frivolity of Thackerary's novel while recasting its (anti) heroines as complex, vibrant women, delivering "a gift to actors and a good bag for its audience" (The New York Times). Kate Hamill (Sense and Sensibility) was recently named The Wall Street Journal's Playwright of the Year 2017, and her athletic, quick-witted and distinctly unfussy retellings of great works of literature have been rapidly embraced with productions around the country. "This play provides a rare thing-a female character who behaves just as badly as the male ones without being reformed or punished." -NY Times. "
