2018 - 2019 SEASON/
VENUS IN FUR
by David Ives
" Venus in Fur is a great love story. It’s a serious novel. It’s a central text of world literature."
"Oh. I thought from the play it had to be porn. Anyway, you don't have to tell me about sadomasochism. I'm in the theatre..."
Thomas, playwright and director, is holding auditions for his adaptation of the controversial 1870s novel, Venus in Furs. After an unsuccessful day of casting he is confronted with Vanda, the unlikely actress who perfectly embodies his leading lady. Reality begins to blur as this audition spirals out of control and into a seductive power play...

The Hamilton Spectator, November 2017
"You'll be gobsmacked as two expert young actors rampage through a minefield of emotions... in unbridled performances that would melt lead into molten mounds of hot refuse... You'll be drilled to your seat."
"Absolutely scintillating... Riveting theatre. Rush and see it now."
