This Canadian classic by Michel Tremblay will be produced in the intimate Dorothy Somerset Studio Theatre by the Department of Theatre and Film to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Featured as the eponymous character is MFA Acting candidate, Frank Zotter. Hosanna, written in 1973, traces the fateful Hallowe’en night of a storied Montreal drag queen who dresses up as her idol, Elizabeth Taylor in in the classic film Cleopatra, while everyone at the party has conspired to dress the same, and have all done it better! The drama is a close examination of identity and the tribulations of love and loyalty.
