Description

An Encore Presentation A Tableau D'Hôte Theatre Production Written by Michel Tremblay Translated by John Van Burek and Bill Glassco Directed by Mike Payette May 15 to June 10, 2018 (Previews May 15 & 16; Premiere May 17) Passionate, fierce, and vulnerable… when the spotlight fades, who is Hosanna? The 2015 quadruple METAs - Montreal English Theatre Awards 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? Winner of four Montreal English Theatre Awards (METAs) for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director and Best Independent Production. “Michel Tremblay's Hosanna sparkles in English” – Montreal Gazette “Eloi ArchamBaudoin [Hosanna] is flawless as the title character. His complete embodiment of this complex and captivating role shows elements of genius.”– Cult MTL.
