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.

Quotes & Highlights
- The running time for <em>The Trinity River Plays</em> is approximately three hours and 10 minutes, including two 15-minute intermissions.
In Jar Fly, a teenaged Iris Spears teeters on the brink of maturity when an event shatters her innocence — and changes her life forever. In Rain, a 34-year-old Iris flees a collapsing marriage to return home to Texas and the comfort of her mother's embrace, only to find that the once-solid ground has shifted beneath her feet. And in Ghoststory, a surprise visit from her estranged husband forces Iris to confront the past and the ghosts that have continued to haunt her. The trilogy is inspired by the rhythm of the cicada — a part of Iris' young life in the south — the insect that emerges every 17 years to take wing.
