2 Male 0 Female

Claude Lemieux is the misfit farm boy from Ste. Eutache who flees to Montreal where he becomes a fashionable hairdresser by day and "a woman of the world by night". He is "Hosanna", a drag queen with the biggest mouth in Montreal, but whose lover is the handsome stud, Currette. Lemieux is a character as vivid, complicated and totally outrageous as any in literature

He appropriates the mythology of two legendary queens, Cleopatra and Elizabeth Taylor, to stage his dreamed of moment of personal triumph. Publicly humiliated by his peers he confronts his true nature and remakes his image to conform to the needs of his own emotional reality

"A play about illusions ... ... an exhilarating, funny, and very moving work" ~ The Hamilton Spectator
