Oct. 20, 2020 - Oct. 25, 2020: Vanity Fair – A Virtual Play

“Vanity Fair” by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray and directed by, faculty member and alumnus, Sara J. Griffin, proves that there is nothing fair about vanity. This (im)morality play watches as one woman climbs the social ladder using her feminine wiles and wit, indulging her wicked impulses; while another, a model of goodness and virtue loses her fortune and all that she loves while clinging to her moral high ground. Bold, wickedly funny, and shockingly relevant, “Vanity Fair” demands that we face our own hypocrisy. After all,…who are we to judge?
