Venus in Fur
September 10 - 20
Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director, is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda, the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. When a vulgar and equally desperate actress walks into his empty audition room, he believes her to be utterly wrong for the experienced part. However, when she begins to exhibit a strange command of the material, Thomas becomes interested in her seductive talents and secretive manner. As the two work through the script, they blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination that only one of them can win. A mysterious, funny, erotic drama that represents yet another departure for the multifaceted David Ives.
