Quebec English-language premiere

Venus in Fur

Funny. Sexy. Delicious.
The ultimate showdown between the sexes.

When the outrageous Vanda storms in to audition for the lead in a play based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s Venus in Furs, her interpretation is more than the controlling playwright-director bargained for. A steamy, erotically-charged cat and mouse face-off ensues, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy, pleasure and pain. Switching from playful kitten to dominating feline, Vanda wants to prove that she is at the top of her game. The highly acclaimed production of a spicy, laugh-out-loud yet literary comedy that has taken the world by storm.
