Theatre Royal Haymarket


Natalie Dormer and David Oakes star in the West End premiere of David Ives’ critically acclaimed Broadway smash hit, VENUS IN FUR.

Enigmatic actress Vanda Jordan appears unannounced for an audition with director Thomas Novachek. She’s determined to land the leading role in his new production – despite seeming wrong for the part. Over one evening in downtown Manhattan their charged meeting becomes a seductive dance to the end.

Directed by Patrick Marber, designed by Rob Howell, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, composition and sound by Tom Gibbons with Ilene Starger as Casting Director, VENUS IN FUR is an intoxicating dark comedy of desire and fantasy.
