The Liminal Playhouse to Present VENUS IN FUR

Artistic Director Tony Prince and Producing Director Richard McGrew are pleased to announce The Liminal Playhouse's upcoming production of "Venus in Fur" by David Ives, running November 10 through 20 at Vault1031.

Nominated for the 2012 Tony Award for best play, "Venus in Fur" is an erotic comedy that takes place at an audition in a warehouse for a new play entitled "Venus in Fur." The audition quickly turns into a battle of wits between the actress and the director.

The Los Angeles Times described it as "a delicious study of sexual power dynamics." The New York Times called it "a suspense-packed study of the erotics (and the semiotics) of power."

The Liminal Playhouse's production is directed by Prince who says, "This is a wonderful play-smart, funny, sexy, dangerous and filled with unexpected twists and turns."

The cast is Victoria Reibel as Vanda and Gerry Rose as Thomas. Production designers include: scenic designer Eric Allgeier, lighting designer Keith Kimmel, costume designer Shane Estes and Sound Designer Richard McGrew.

The Liminal Playhouse's second season will close in the spring with "Time Stands Still" by Donald Margulies, which runs March 23 through April 2, 2017.

"Venus in Fur" will run November 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m. and November 13 and 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Vault1031, 1031 South Sixth Street, Louisville, KY.

Tickets are $18 in advance or $20 at the door. Advance tickets are available at or by calling (502) 553-8056.

The Liminal Playhouse embraces, explores, and celebrates the ambiguous, and sometimes paradoxical, nature of our shared humanity.

The Liminal Playhouse is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
