Directed by Jessica Stone
A coproduction with Shakespeare Theatre Company

A.C.T.’s Geary Theater

Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission


From acclaimed playwright Kate Hamill (2017 Playwright of the Year, Wall Street Journal) comes a rollicking new stage adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s classic 19th-century novel that pops with 21st-century spirit.

Ambitious Becky Sharp may not have been born with wealth or status, but she’s determined to attain both—at any cost. Armed with fierce wit and calculating charm, Becky forges her own path through London’s high society, dealing herself into a game she was never invited to play.
