SCR Presents: "Venus in Fur"
October 5-26, 2014

Auditions are over for the day, and Thomas still hasn’t found the perfect actress for his adaptation of a 19th century erotic novel. [Thunder clap!] Vanda stumbles into the bare rehearsal studio, soaking wet and hours late. Before he can stop her, Vanda strips down to saucy lingerie, wiggles into a white period dress, and mysteriously—hilariously—becomes the elusive leading lady. But the battle for sexual dominance that follows is not limited to the script in what The New York Times called “90 minutes of good, kinky fun.” Adult content.

LOCATION:
South Coast Repertory
655 Town Center Drive
Costa Mesa
