THE STORY:

Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director, is desperate to find an actress to play the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a desperate actress - 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. A mysterious, funny, erotic drama that represents yet another departure for the multifaceted David Ives.                                        

“The teeter-tottering test of wills that takes place in VENUS IN FUR makes even the most fraught encounter between a domineering director and a sensitive performer seem like a play date in the sandbox. Actors may be pleased to hear that in this ninety minutes of good, kinky fun, the upper hand does not necessarily belong to the usual suspect.” —NY Times.

“VENUS IN FUR invites both carnal and cerebral excitement…” —Village Voice.

“Ives has crafted a modern take on a classic tale, skillfully twisting his plot and characters in a fast-paced journey into one man’s entrapment by a clever, vengeful female.” —Associated Press.

“You want funny? You want sexy? Then you’ll want to see VENUS IN FUR.” —New Jersey Newsroom.
