This South African premier of the hit Broadway play, Venus in Fur introduces us to an unusually talented young actress called Vanda, who is determined to land the lead in playwright Thomas\’ new play based on the classic erotic novel, Venus in Fur. Vanda\’s 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.

"This remarkable show serves to cement KickstArt's position as one of the top theatre companies in the country… a black comedy of great wit, intelligence and dark sensuality which requires performers of great ability. Stead has definitely found these in Janna Ramos-Violante and Neil Coppen. Unmissable."Peter Mitchel, The Witness
"Venus in Fur is a rare and exhilarating piece of theatre… "Gisel Turner, Going Places
"Five Stars *****: It's not often that you see a play that has you on the edge of your seat in anticipation of what will happen next, but Venus in Fur is one of those productions… this is an opportunity to watch one of Broadway's freshest hit offerings, presented by an award-winning company, performed by an award winning cast… I don't think you want to miss this one!"Caroline Smart, Artsmart
"A triumph on all four counts: Steven Stead's immaculate direction pulls the maximum effect in both dramatic and humorous qualities from this multi-layered script by David Ives. Top notch performances from Janna Ramos-Violante and Neil Coppen; all presented on Greg King's clean–cut set."Caroline Smart, Artsmart
