Venus in Fur
by David Ives
Directed by Trevor Dhu
Please note that for this season only there is a Wednesday show (21st Feb), and no Thursday show in the second week.
A mysterious, erotic and funny drama. Written by US playwright, screenwriter and novelist David Ives and directed by Trevor Dhu, Venus in Fur was first staged in 2010 and nominated for numerous Tony Awards before Roman Polanski shot a French film version in late 2012.
The play-within-a-play is an adaptation of the 1870 novel Venus in Furs by Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, the book that inspired the term masochism. The play goes behind the scenes at an audition in New York City, where a playwright and mysterious young actress blur the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power and love and sex.
