All in Twilight Theater Company

Venus in Fur Rules at Twilight

David Ives’ play Venus in Fur is either an actor’s wildest dream or worst nightmare: it features only two actors, switching fluidly between roles as they perform a play-within-a-play onstage for an uninterrupted ninety minutes. It’s difficult material that could easily go sideways, exploring sado-masochistic relationships and using portions of an 1870 novel. Fortunately, under Alicia Turvin’s strong direction, Twilight Theater Company’s current production is more than up for the challenge.
