Venus In Fur
April 27 - May 18
by David Ives
A Circle Theatre Production
The critically acclaimed production comes to WaterTower Theatre with the same cast: Allison Pistorius as Vanda and Chris Hury as Thomas. When Vanda arrives several hours late to her audition for a play based on a nineteenth-century erotic novel, The Director , Thomas, is less than impressed. But Vanda’s masterful performance flips the script on Thomas’ expectations and turns the session into a tango for dominance between actress and director, woman and man. Hailed as “seriously smart and very funny” by The New York Times , Venus in Fur is an engaging study of the politics of sex and power that’s guaranteed to charm and mesmerize. This play contains adult content and language.

Spunk is a wild, bluesy wail—three stories by the great Harlem Renaissance writer Zora Neale Hurston, adapted into a staggeringly theatrical play by George C. Wolfe, who won an Obie for its 1989 off-Broadway premiere production. A trio of vignettes of African-American life in the first half of the 20th century, Spunk is a raucous, charming, blues-infused look at love, revenge, jealousy, and the fine art of the hustle.
