New Edgecliff Theatre Announces VENUS IN FUR

NET_Venus in Fur logoVENUS IN FUR by David Ives
New Edgecliff Theatre
Mar. 1-17
Hoffner Lodge [Northside]

Directed by Greg Proccacino

Cast (in order of appearance): Brandon Burton as Thomas Novachek and Tess Talbot as Vanda Jordan

Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director, is desperate to find an actress to play the female lead in his adaptation of the classic tale, Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress who is utterly wrong for the sophisticated part. However, as the two work through the script, they blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game that only one of them can win. For mature audiences.

PLEASE NOTE: new show dates!

  • Thu-Sat March 1-3
  • Thu-Sat March 8-10
  • Thu-Sat March 15-17

All shows begin promptly at 7:30pm.

NET has the distinct pleasure of performing in the spacious second-floor hall at Hoffner Lodge, located at 4120 Hamilton Avenue and set in the heart of one of Cincinnati’s coolest and most vibrant neighborhoods: Northside.

When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, thirty-five-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to bag a buck.
