Event Details

“The best theatrical experience I’ve had since New York 2011and the Book of Mormon”  MAUREEN LIPMAN

 

SAPPHO …in 9 fragments by Jane Montgomery Griffiths makes its Canadian premiere June 2013 in Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal, presented by Jer’s Vision. Directed by Ottawa native Jessica Ruano, this politically-charged and visually-compelling solo performance achieved critical and popular acclaim in London, England with a sold-out extended run.

Within a secluded cavern, Ancient Greece’s first love poet laments her erasure from history, while a chorus girl named Atthis is seduced into a modern-day Sapphic romance.
