Thomas Novachek, a New York playwright-director, has adapted a scandalous 19th century novella for the stage. Known as the birthplace of sado-masochism, the original Venus in Furs charted an obsessive relationship between a man and the mistress to whom he becomes enslaved.

After a maddening day auditioning for his leading lady, someone both sexy and articulate, Thomas has almost given up when Vanda Johnson enters unannounced. He is tired and ready to quit, but Vanda is determined to be seen. Thomas reluctantly agrees to audition her, this enigmatic actress who is brash and uncouth, yet has a surprisingly deep understanding of the work. As a storm crescendos outside, desire twists and turns on itself, blurring the lines between play-acting and reality.

Venus in Fur has been produced all over the world, and was turned into a film that premiered at Cannes in 2013. Caroline Stacey’s production, starring Joanna Richards (Boys Will Be Boys) as Vanda and Craig Alexander (Cold Light) as Thomas, opens a theatrical Pandora’s Box where nothing is as it seems, unleashing the outer reaches of desire, fantasy, and power.
