Centaur Theatre Company




By Michel Tremblay


Directed by Mike Payette


Centaur Theatre Company never disappoints.  Hosanna delivers 90 continuous minutes of riveting dialogue mostly between two characters and at intervals, by the lead character alone, reminiscing. The action takes place in an apartment above a pharmacy inhabited by Hosanna, played by Eloi ArchamBoudion and his/her live-in boyfriend Cuirette, played by Davide Chiazzese. Hosanna, a hair dresser by day and a drag queen by night is in a relationship with Cuirette, a biker with nothing much to offer other than his love for Hosanna. She is going through a period of doubt as to her appeal, once a beautiful Cleopatra and now a rapidly aging cross-dresser. The dialogue, written by Michel Tremblay in French was subsequently translated to English in 1974. It featured the same cast and creative team as the current production and received four Montreal English Language Theatre Awards:


Outstanding Independent Production and Outstanding Director, Mike Payette

Outstanding Supporting Performance, Davide Chiazzese

Outstanding Lead Performance, Eloi ArchamBoudoin


Continuing thru June 10 and not to be missed.
