Venus in Fur
Written by David Ives
Directed by James P. Darvas
May 17 - June 15
Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director, is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda, the female lead in his adaptation of the classic Victorian tale "Venus in Fur". Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress—oddly enough, named Vanda. Though utterly wrong for the sophisticated part, Vanda exhibits a strange command of the material, piquing Thomas' interest with 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 power that only one of them can win. A mysterious, funny, erotic drama that represents yet another departure for the multifaceted David Ives.
