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.
