Venus in Fur – a staged reading

Show Closed

About This Show

Thomas, a playwright and director, has spent the day hopelessly auditioning actresses to play the lead role in his adaptation of the 1870 sadomasochistic novel, Venus in Fur. Just as he’s about to leave, in walks Vanda, a brash, spirited actress ready to play. The two engage in a psychosexual match equal to the storm building outside. Roles switch back and forth and the struggle for domination, both as people and characters becomes blurred. As the power structure intensifies the audience is left to wonder who will end up on top. The staged reading will be followed by a talkback with the audience, presentation of Ravman Productions' upcoming projects, and a refreshment. Starring Francesca Ravera and Lenny Grossman. Directed by Kim T. Sharp.
