(AP) David Ives’ naughty “Venus in Fur” tops the list of most produced plays nationwide during the 2013-14 season, according to the theater industry’s largest trade group.

American Theatre magazine, published by Theatre Communications Group, announced the list in its October issue.

Ives’ play, which explores power and powerlessness with more than a bit of sadomasochism, was a hit on Broadway and won Nina Arianda a Tony last year. Twenty-two theaters will produce “Venus in Fur” this season.

The Top 10 also includes Bruce Norris’ “Clybourne Park,” Katori Hall’s “The Mountaintop,” David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Good People,” Jon Robin Baitz’s “Other Desert Cities,” Amy Herzog’s “4000 Miles” and Christopher Durang’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.”

The list was compiled from 499 member theaters and omits holiday themed shows and Shakespeare works.
