Venus in Fur

By David Ives

“You only say that because you yourself are so individual.”

“A man usually says that to a woman whose individuality he is about to undermine.”

Actress Vanda turns up out of the blue for an audition with Thomas, it’s clear she’s determined to land the leading role in his new play. But why? She seems totally unsuitable for the part. As Thomas is about to give up for the evening, it becomes apparent that Vanda actually knows every line by heart.

When both of them become caught up in the characters they’re reading, Vanda takes charge. Playwright David Ives expertly offers the audience the opportunity to explore and analyze the power struggle within a variety of relationships. Contains very strong language and sensual content. Suitable for people aged over 16.
