The Theatre Royal Haymarket has released production photos for the West End premiere of Venus In Fur starring Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, The Tudors) and David Oakes (Victoria). David Ives’ intoxicating dark comedy of desire and fantasy opens tonight at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
Directed by Patrick Marber, this Broadway smash-hit will run until 9 December with over 200 £15 seats for every performance.
Venus In Fur first premiered off Broadway in 2010 before transferring to the Manhattan Theatre Club in November 2011 where it received widespread critical acclaim, winning Nina Arianda (Vanda Jordan) the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play.
Set in downtown Manhattan, it tells the story of enigmatic actress Vanda Jordan who appears unannounced for an audition with writer-director Thomas Novachek. Vanda is determined to land the leading role in his new production – despite seeming wrong for the part – and over the evening that follows, their charged meeting becomes a seductive dance to the end.
Director Patrick Marber is joined by an award winning creative team with set and costume design by Rob Howell, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, composition and sound by Tom Gibbons and Ilene Starger as Casting Director.
Tickets for Venus In Fur can be purchased from the Theatre Royal Haymarket website.
