Enigmatic actress Vanda Jordan appears unannounced for an audition with director Thomas Novachek. She’s determined to land the leading role in his new production – despite seeming wrong for the part. Over one evening in downtown Manhattan their charged meeting becomes a seductive dance to the end.

David Ives’ play originally premiered Off-Broadway in 2010 before transferring to the Manhattan Theatre Club in November 2011, winning Nina Arianda (Vanda Jordan) the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play.
