Theatrical mastermind David Ives' sexy, provocative comedy, Venus in Fur, is an electrifying game of cat and mouse between a young actress and a demanding playwright-director that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex. "Role-playing takes on a whole new meaning" (New York Post) in this "don’t miss" play The Wall Street Journal says is "deadly serious, madly funny … you won't see a funnier play this season, or a smarter one."

Nicole Rodenburg and Michael Bakkensen talk about Venus In Fur on KUHF's The Front Row

"The play's blend of originality, hilarity, intelligence and, yes, sex proves as irresistibly alluring as the title character."
Houston Chronicle review, October 17, 2013

"If you like your pain with a lot of pleasure, then Venus in Fur will have you on your knees -- in thanks to the Alley for this bright and snappy comedy of sexual mis-manners."
