From the moment the lights go down, David Ives' Venus in Fur stimulates, starting off on a humourous note but becomes progressively darker, more dangerous and deliciously erotic.

Adapted from a novella by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, whose name inspired the term masochism (a clue as to the nature of the play) it leads you through psychosexual games in two realities - between the director and wannabe actress of the play, and between the Victorian male and female characters of the play-within-the-play.

The mysteries surrounding the seemingly clueless and naïve Vanda are lathered on as the layers around the arrogant and composed Thomas are peeled off. Along the way, the mood is kept comically racy as Vanda switches between wannabe actress and sensual seductress, and back again, in a blink of an eye - sometimes, mid-sentence.

Together, this electrifying cat-and-mouse game promises to be more steamy than E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey, one that is funny yet mysterious, sensual yet unsettling.

From the company that brought you The Pillowman and Blackbird, SRT now presents a sizzling and evocative production that leaves you hot under the collar.


Thomas, a playwright, is getting ready to call it a day when the ditzy Vanda arrives to audition for a role in his adaptation of the erotic novel Venus in Fur. Late and drenched from the rain, she cajoles, charms and guilts him into letting her try out for the lead female character, who just happens to share her name.

What follows is a sexually-charged power dance in the two realities: the play, and the play-within-the-play. The line between the two blurs as life and art take on an eerie resemblance.
