Reader’s Theater: Venus in Fur
Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director,is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda,the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress—oddly enough named Vanda. As the two work through the script, the lines between the play and reality begin to blur as the two enter into a game of submission and domination.
Tony nominated for Best Play. Winner of Tony award for Best Actress.
Venus In Furis a mysterious,funny, erotic play.”Ninety minutes of good kinky fun.”The New York Times.
“The teeter-totering test of wills that take 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.”
