Venus in Fur
Hail Aphrodite? Hail Natalie Dormer! Phenomenal is the only way she can be described. The one set stage and the simplicity was the perfect backdrop for her, giving her the space to radiate talent. Dormer can change accent seamlessly, switching between three in the short one-and-a-half-hour play, each without fault; which eased the transition from character to character.

Venus in Fur in 250 words
Venus in Fur is a dark, intense comedy starring Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games) and David Oakes (The Borgias, The Pillars of the Earth). I would describe Venus in Fur as an intense, dark comedy about sexual power play, but you could look at this production from many different angles.

REVIEW: Venus in Fur
This two-hander sees Dormer's Vanda Jackson arrive unannounced determined to audition for Oakes' director -Thomas Novachek - whose new production stars a character who shares her name. In this play within a play, characters are more layered than a bag of onions; but it is Dormer's Vanda(s) who steal the show.
