Venus in Fur

venus in fur - forestburgh playhouse

Rated R

Venus in Fur is a mysterious, funny, erotic drama that represents yet another departure for the multifaceted David Ives. A two person play about an encounter between a director trying to cast an actress in his play, 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. Full of “good, kinky fun, it becomes clear that 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. Do you want funny? You want sexy? Then you’ll want to see Venus in Fur!
