"... opening night kept a full house gripped to their seats for the entirety of the 90-minute single act”
(Copenhagen Post, February 2017.)
It is night-time in rainy downtown Manhattan.
Thomas, beleaguered playwright, is auditioning women to play the female lead Vanda, in his adaptation of the classic, sadomasochistic, erotic novel Venus in Fur. What develops is an electrifying game of cat and mouse.
As Thomas and Vanda work through Thomas' script on stage, the line blurs between play and reality. Man and woman enter into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination only one of them can win.
The repartee between Thomas and Vanda - some of the smartest and funniest dialogue in contemporary American playwriting - alternates between desire, fantasy, fact and fiction.
Venus in Fur has audiences giggling and glued to their seats till the breathless finalé.
“The Venus in Fur play was truly excellent and I look forward to the next. Thanks to the actors for a wonderful experience!"
“Thoroughly enjoyed the performance … Great intimate setting and intense acting. Loved it!”
