Sexy, Provocative, Hilarious - See David Ives "Venus In Fur" live on-stage at Orlando Shakes

When Vanda arrives several hours late to her audition for a play based on a nineteenth-century erotic novel, the director is less than impressed. But Vanda’s masterful performance flips the script, and the audition turns into a tango for dominance between actress and director.


Sexy, Provocative, Hilarious - Venus In Fur comes to the the Orlando Shakes

Sexy. Provocative. Hilarious. Hailed as “seriously smart and very funny” by The New York Times, VENUS IN FUR is a laugh-out-loud study of the politics of sex and power that’s guaranteed to charm and mesmerize.


Venus in Fur will take to the stage at Orlando Shakes from February 7 - March 3.


Venus in Fur is a two-person play by David Ives set in modern New York City. The play had its premiere off-Broadway at the Classic Stage Company in 2010 and on Broadway in 2011.


David Ives is an American playwright, screenwriter, and novelist. He is perhaps best known for his comic one-act plays; The New York Times in 1997 referred to him as the "maestro of the short form". Ives has also written dramatic plays, narrative stories, and screenplays, has adapted French 17th and 18th-century classical comedies, and adapted 33 musicals for New York City's Encores! series.
