“Comma Sutra induces laughs, reactions of discovery, and vocal appreciations of how elegantly one of the cleverest minds to grace the stage can come across to a pleased crowd” - The Plus Ones
Featuring a host of original songs ranging from audaciously pun-filled to downright saucy, Comma Sutra explores what it means to be a language nerd in an age of text speak and emoji. Improvised poetry, wickedly funny grammar lessons and rants about quotation marks are all part of Fitzhardinge’s journey towards discovering why she is so smitten with the written.
With a love of language that extends beyond just English, polyglot Fitzhardinge switches effortlessly between four languages as she delves into sign language gone hilariously wrong and Germany's penchant for weird and wonderful words, culminating in a show-stopping multilingual finale.
Comma Sutra is an award-nominated, comedic musical romp with heart that celebrates language and nerdiness, and is a must-see for anyone who has cringed at a sign advertising “potato’s”.
