St Michael’s Players are performing this intriguing drama Vanity Fair at St Michael’s Centre, Chiswick W4 3DZ in April 2016

Adapted by Declan Donnellan from William Makepeace Thackeray it will be directed by Bryony Wilman.

The play is a distillation of William Thackeray's extensive novel, satirising greed and social climbing in Regency England.

The central character is Becky Sharp, a penniless orphan determined to grasp every opportunity to improve her position.

The play is fast-paced, with songs, humour, actors in multiple roles, great lighting effects and action - moving between London, India and Brussels on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo.

The play is being performed from Wednesday 20 April to Saturday 23 April with performances starting at 7.45pm. Tickets are £9.00 & £7.00 and can be obtained from the St. Michael Players' web site.
