Vanda, that oh-so-talented and treacherous actor, knows she's perfect for the lead in a sadomasochistic stage play. All she wants is a three-minute read for the part. Honest. Should Thomas, the playwright, buy that one, he's in for much more than he bargained for. In Venus in Fur, David Ives's cautionary backstage comedy from 2010, an actor with a little something extra takes on the sexual politics of theater, drawing her prey into a web of intrigue as she gradually unleashes a unique, increasingly extreme brand of literary and gender criticism. John Murphy directs Meredith Sause and Mark Filiaci in this American Theater Practice production. —Byron Woods
