What You'll Get


In 1810, a young black woman with an enormous posterior is lured away from her menial job in South Africa to tour the world and make lots of money as the newly-dubbed "Hottentot Venus." Once in England, however, she is sold to a freak show, where she shows off her attributes, bringing in crowds and raking in money for the side show owners. Eventually, she's procured by a white doctor who keeps her as his mistress until he's in danger of losing his medical reputation and social standing. He then conspires to bring about her ultimate degradation and downfall. Inspired by the true-life story of Sarah "Saartjie" Baartman, Pulitzer-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks' play Venus provides a fictional account of her life abroad in 19th century London. See this two-time Obie-winning historical drama at Miami's Wendell A. Narcisse Performing Arts Black Box Theater.
