A staged reading of the play written by Migdalia Cruz

Directed by Javier Luis Hurtado

Black Box at the Culver Center of the Arts

Fur is the story of Citrona, a hirsute young woman who is purchased by Michael at a sideshow to be his bride. Michael has a fetish for animals and runs a pet shop in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles which has become a giant sand pit. He hires Nena, an animal trapper to catch and bring food to the caged Citrona. But Citrona falls in love with Nena who's in love with Michael. A tragic-comic triangular retelling of the Beauty & the Beast where the beast wins.
