    Oh my god, I just saw the play “Sappho in 9 Fragments” at the Ottawa Fringe at their noon-time showing.

    I have never had morning sex as good as this show.

    It was a mesmerizing erotic tale of love, lust, innocence, power, sexuality, passion desired, and passion denied. Oh, don’t forget jealousy.

    And couple that with a set that drips “bound passion”, and an athletically gymnastic performance by an actress with the stature of an Amazon goddess with magical voice transitions, you’ll soon be sitting in your seat thinking “Oh my god I never knew it could be this good, and can we do it again now?”

    Highly highly recommended, see it with someone you lust for.

    “The aerial choreography alone makes Sappho…in 9 Fragments stunning and the lush voice of Victoria Grove as Sappho is captivating beyond measure. The set design is simple, but highly effective, and the whole show is a visual delight.”
