AN ENCORE PRESENTATION
A Tableau D’Hôte Theatre Production
By MICHEL TREMBLAY
Translated by JOHN VAN BUREK & BILL GLASSCO
Directed by MIKE PAYETTE
The 2015 quadruple META-winning production by Montreal’s Tableau D’Hôte Theatre, and the first ever professional English production of Michel Tremblay’s seminal success in the playwright’s hometown. Hosanna, a.k.a. Claude Lemieux, returns home in tears after being cruelly betrayed by her lover and friends at a Halloween party. Over the course of one tumultuous evening that volleys dizzily between catty quips and gut-wrenching honesty, the Cleopatra impersonator comes face to face with her deepest fears and insecurities. In a world that forced her to wear a mask to fit in, will the need for love, to be seen for who she truly is, outweigh the dread of shedding her illusions?

Hosanna is Tremblay’s Finest
Michel Tremblay is the master of the “two hander”, and Hosanna (By Michel Tremblay translated by John Van Burek and Bill Glassco, directed by Mike Payette) is his finest play in that style. The writing is so fluid and visceral that the audience is instantly swept up into the reality of an ageing drag queen and the biker who loves her.
