After seducing New York audiences and critics as "Broadway's hottest date night!" (Liz Smith) Venus in Fur arrives at A.C.T. in an electrifying new production. When a young actress auditions for a gifted but demanding playwright/director and she insists that he reads his adaptation of a classic novel about sexual domination with her, their encounter explodes into a playful, witty, and erotic game of cat and mouse, dangerously blurring the lines between fantasy and reality—and seduction and power.
