Playwright Thomas Novachek is at a loss. There are simply no actresses talented enough to play his leading lady. Then in walks Vanda, a mysterious siren with the uncanny ability to inhabit his character. All bets are off when the audition quickly escalates into a seductive power play. With loads of cheek and a hint of the erotic, Venus in Fur keeps you on the edge of your seat as you question who is truly in charge.

RSVP on Facebook!

Fifty Shades of Venus

4 Feb

“You don’t have to tell me about sadomasochism. I’m in the theatre.”


“In love as in politics, one partner must rule. One of them must be the hammer, the other the anvil. I willingly accept being the anvil.”


“Really sexy, huh. Or like, erotic, if you’re into humiliation. Oh, by the way, I don’t usually walk around in leather lingerie and a dog collar.”


“Hail, Aphrodite!”



Come see Venus in Fur next weekend! February 12, 13, and 14 at 8 pm in the Heyer Sky Lounge.

Due to the impending storm, TAC-e operation will be suspended for this evening (regardless of Penn’s schedule) and possibly into tomorrow. Below is information provided by TAC-e Chair Meg MacInnes, who will be contacting the general TAC-e listserv later.

If school is NOT cancelled tomorrow:
We will have open auditions tomorrow night. All One Acts will be bumped from their rehearsal spaces, and all TAC-e groups will be in the same audition spaces as they were yesterday.

If school IS cancelled tomorrow:
Again, One Acts will be bumped from rehearsal spaces on Wednesday and Thursday. We will have open auditions on Wednesday. Everyone would be in the same space they were yesterday. We will have callbacks on Thursday and Friday. Thursday will be Naatak in 179, Players in 180, and FTC in Harrison. Friday will be Q in Platt 179, 4A in Platt 180, and Stimtuitons in a space to be determined. Platt is extending hours for us.
