Vanda (Tony Award® nominee Nina Arianda) is a preternaturally talented young actress determined to land the lead in Thomas’ (Emmy® Award nominee Hugh Dancy) new play based on the classic erotic novel, Venus in Fur. Her emotionally charged audition for the gifted but demanding playwright/director becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex.
“Good, kinky fun!” -The New York Times
