Overview

“In one school year she kissed nineteen boys and won all the science awards. ”

From one of Canada’s boldest playwrights comes an intimate look into the sexual life of a young woman as she struggles with the power of her desires.

Sorrel grew up with professor parents, where carob was dessert, reading passages of Canadian poetry aloud was entertainment, and canoeing was the only sport encouraged. No one really noticed the studious Sorrel until she turned seventeen, when late puberty suddenly transformed her into a hot dork. Boys wanted her and girls loathed her, and all at once Sorrel discovered the joys of sexuality and the pain of social rejection.

Sorrel enters college as a self-proclaimed loser with no female friends, but then she meets Maggie. Maggie’s unwavering friendship helps her shed her inhibitions and become more truly herself. The two women grow older, but when Maggie is diagnosed with cancer, Sorrel must choose between raw feeling and devotion.

Reviews

“One of Canada’s finest playwrights. ”

“This story of desire, morality and connection is hard not to fall in love with. ”

“If women’s sexuality is typically played out in romantic canopy beds or pitch-black bedrooms, Moscovitch places it unabashedly under flickering fluorescent lights in a bar bathroom. ”
