What begins as a normal audition for a role in a play turns into an increasingly seductive battle for power in Venus in Fur. Inspired by the notorious 1870 erotic novel of the same name, David Ives' saucy and sensational play pits actress against playwright in a virtuosic display of seduction, cruelty and gamesmanship. As the action shifts between the audition and the play within the play, the two engage in a kinky game of cat and mouse. Among the most acclaimed -- and most provocative -- new plays in recent Broadway history, Venus in Fur cheekily and brilliantly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.

- “...Altogether riveting..." and "Highly Recommended." <em>--Chicago Sun-Times </em>
We all know the story--or so we think--of a young man who unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Sophocles' monumental treatment of this theme has been a staple of world theater for more than 2,000 years. In this bold and provocative re-telling of the myth, Goodman Artistic Associate and Tony Award- winning director and adaptor Frank Galati reimagines Sophocles' tragedy, fusing it with the words and ideas of Sigmund Freud-the man whose revolutionary theories crossed the boundaries of science by using the art of myth, metaphor and dream to bring meaning to the ultimate human drama.
