“You don’t have to tell me about sadomasochism, I’m in the theater!” VANDA

VENUS IN FUR, the Broadway hit, makes its Cape Cod premiere in Provincetown. Thomas Novachek is frustrated and desperate. He auditioned scores of incompetent actresses for his adaptation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s 19th century novella VENUS IN FURS, about a man who wants to be dominated by a woman. But then, hours late for her audition, Vanda arrives with a crash of thunder, and her uncanny knowledge of the play intrigues Thomas. Soon an erotic exploration of domination and submission unearths repressed desires as each tests the will of the other. “…seriously smart and very funny” (The New York Times) VENUS IN FUR will have you laughing and captivated by this battle of the sexes.

Warning: Suggestive language.

Margaret Van Sant directs this seductive and sexy comedy. VENUS IN FUR features Kat Connelly as Vanda, an actress desperate to audition for a challenging role beyond her reach, and Spencer Keasey, as Thomas, a beleaguered director desperate to find the perfect sophisticated actress for his script.
