Dark, witty, and incredibly thought-provoking.
“This ain’t about love. It’s about getting a piece of me. You want the piece, you gotta put up with the rest of me. Isn’t that what this play’s all about?”
Thomas is a playwright-slash-director, desperately in need of an actress. A young-ish actress. A beautiful-slash-sexy actress. A sexy-slash-articulate young actress with some classical training and a particle of brain in her skull. Enter Vanda. The resulting action is more complex, and more important, than any audition.
Venus in Fur, by David Ives, is a play that has only grown more relevant since its debut in 2010 – a provocative exploration of gender roles and the intricate dynamic of artistic collaboration. The question is: can Vanda trust Thomas to open up his eyes, and see the woman standing next to him?
Who should I bring?
This is an exciting and challenging play. Bring a friend who is ready to discuss the show afterwards. This acting tour-de-force is only 100 minutes long (no intermission), but it packs quite a punch. Contains very strong language and sensual content. Suitable for people aged over 16. The performance will begin at 7:30
