Hosanna

The writing is pure Tremblay­ musical, breathtakingly beautiful and layered with emotion and resonance.

The Toronto Star

A ground-breaking play by one of Canada’s most celebrated playwrights returns to the stage, in a 30th Anniversary presentation by Theatre Network.

Award-winning director Bradley Moss (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and Edmonton’s pre-eminent drag queen Darrin Hagen (Guys in Disguise, author of The Edmonton Queen) team up to re-create the tragic, timeless, and transcendent story of Hosanna.

For Hosanna, life is a drag. Her biker-stud lover and jewel-studded friends have betrayed her, and their devastating act of cruelty threatens to destroy her completely.

Her glory, her dignity, and her very identity are at stake. It is a crisis of sexuality and self that will strip away her illusions, and leave her to face the naked truth.
