Venus in Fur

By David Ives

Rehearsal dates: August 27- September 18, 2024
Performances: September 19 – October 20, 2024

Thomas Novachek is the writer-director of a new play opening in New York City; this play-within-the-play is an adaptation of the 1870 novel Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (the novel that inspired the term “masochism”). The play begins with Novachek on the telephone lamenting the inadequacies of the actresses who have showed up that day to audition for the lead character, Vanda von Dunayev. Suddenly, at the last minute, a new actress called Vanda (Wanda) Jordan bursts in. At first it’s hard to imagine that she will please this very particular and exasperated writer/director: She’s brash, vulgar and unschooled. But she convinces him to let her audition for the part of Vanda von Dunayev, with the director/writer reading the part of Severin von Kushemski.

Available Roles:

Vanda Jordan/Vanda von Dunayev (20s-40s) – Vanda is an enigma; we are never quite sure who she is. Initially she comes across as a poor fit for the grind of Broadway; she’s clumsy in her introduction, seems genuinely unaware of how to put her best foot forward. Earnestness mixed with brashness means she conveys a willingness to do whatever is necessary to win over Thomas (she removes most of her clothing within the first 5 pages). And yet, Vanda utterly transforms in a way that suggests she knows Thomas’ play better than he does. While Thomas is the in the driver’s seat of the audition, Vanda’s character is the comedic and impactful engine of Venus in Fur as she transforms over and over, from hapless actress to skilled dominatrix, to the Goddess of femininity Herself.
Thomas Novachek/Severin Kushemski (20s-40s) – Thomas is the archetype for how we imagine most writer/directors: self-assured, narcissistic, impatient, male. It is also unclear whether his high opinion of himself or his play are remotely justified. If it wasn’t so comical, it would provoke outrage. We are introduced to these traits early and often as he complains to his significant other on the phone or attempts to steer Vanda out of the room. However, once his counterpart gets the chance to read, Thomas ends up in an unsettled position. What is it like to finally capture your personal white whale? He finds himself increasingly compromised as he plays his part as Kushemski, and perhaps even welcoming as Vanda strips (pun intended) away all of the power given by his maleness and cultural position.

Apprentice Program



Theatre Three is proud to offer this unique apprenticeship opportunity to people who have just graduated college and are interested in a career in professional theatre. Apprentices serve as part of the production team of Theatre Three for one full season and receive a weekly stipend of $350. We are looking for two apprentices to serve as either a season production assistant OR as a design and technical assistant. This program also serves to develop new skills in areas that apprentices might not be familiar with so both apprentices should be willing and prepared to work outside of their specialty.

As a Production Assistant, you can expect:

    • to work side-by-side with an Equity Stage Manager during all rehearsals
    • to be an active participant in all production meetings with some of DFW’s best directors and designers
    • to either run lights and sound or manage backstage during performances
    • to serve as properties master on productions you are working on

As a Design and Technical Apprentice, you can expect:

  • to assist in Design Elements of a production.
  • to assist the Technical Director with the build, installation, and strike of a production
  • to assist the Master Electrician with hang and focus
  • to assist the Scenic Painter
  • to assist with general building maintenance



Both apprentices can expect to gain the experience they want and develop the connections they need as they make the transition from student to working professional.

The application deadline for the apprenticeship is Friday, May 24, 2024.

To apply, please send a cover letter specifying your interest in this program, a resume, and two letters of recommendations to:
