Nominated 2012 Tony Awards Best Play

A mysterious, funny and erotic drama ...

Thomas, a young playwright, has written an adaptation of the 1870 novel Venus in Fur by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (after whom the term "masochism" was coined)

Thomas is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda, the female lead

Then 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

And enter a game of submission and domination that only one of them can win

An exploration of gender roles and sexuality, in which desire twists and turns in on itself

And also a witty, unsettling look at the art of acting

Onstage and off

"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
