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?

By Michel Tremblay
