VENUS IN FUR
by David Ives
directed by Casey Stangl
October 5-26, 2014

Julianne Argyros Stage

Auditions are over for the day, and Thomas still hasn’t found the perfect actress for his adaptation of a 19th century erotic novel.   [Thunder clap!]  Vanda stumbles into the bare rehearsal studio, soaking wet and hours late.  Before he can stop her, Vanda strips down to saucy lingerie, wiggles into a white period dress, and mysteriously—hilariously—becomes the elusive leading lady.  But the battle for sexual dominance that follows is not limited to the script in what The New York Times called “90 minutes of good, kinky fun.”

Find the press release, bios, headshots—as they become available—and more about the show on this page.
