The title is- the name of a hairdresser by day and transvestite by night who has a shattering experience while clad as Cleopatra in emulation of Liz Taylor whom he has adored for 20 years.

A windup indicates both boys somehow will face up more understandingly to less complicated homosexual hangups Writer Michel Tremblay does leave one little bit of plot dangling, about Cuirette's dis- tress because his favorite Montreal park is too well lighted now against quickie pickups. Tremblay's translated vocabulary suggests he writes from the heart while seated in the butter. The two roles are played by Richard Monette, with an obscuring accent as Hosanna, and Richard Donat as a strapping bed chum. The production was directed by Bill Glassco, who runs Toronto's Tarragon Theatre and did the translation with John Van Burek. Hosanna is no cause for hallelujah. Wins title EDMONTON (CP) Milan Rabljenovic of Edmonton captured the 1974 Alberta Open Chess championship here defeating last year's champion, Denis Allan of Saskatoon. The class B trophy went to J. A. Fleming of Calgary. Dramatist left plenty of evidence Shaw was man of many talents LONDON (CP) James Agate, a critic with a limited admiration for George Ber- nard Shaw's output as a dramatist, once wrote that his plays were the price we paid for his prefaces. The protean Irishman left voluminous evidence by which posterity can judge his varied talents as a playwright, music and drama critic, polemicist, philosopher, economist and self-anointed authority on vir- tually every subject of impor- tance before his death in 1950 at the age of 94. The greater part of this life work now has been published by Bodley Head in seven vol- umes of plays and prefaces, two of autobiography and two of letters, He may have been lucky to live in an age when paper was Gov 'f closes sex theatre PARIS French interior ministry Wednesday ordered the closing of a Parisian sex theatre, alleging it dis- turbed public order. "The action shown by this theatre is devoid of any ar- tistic motive and has reached inadmissible the ministry said. plentiful. Two London jour- nals, long since defunct, The Star and The World, allowed him words a week, which he supplied with no apparent difficulty. The plays and prefaces rate as the definitive edition, authorized by the residual beneficiaries of the Shaw es- British Museum, National Gallery of Ireland and Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. It is faithful to his idiosyncrasies of punctuation and spelling, his refusal to use the apostrophe because he considered it a blot on the printed page and his preference for the archaic "shew" instead of "show." The plays include not only such well-known works as Pygmalion, Saint Joan and Major Barbara but others that have barely seen the light of day such as an early Passion Play, The Cassone, The Gadf- ly and Why She Would Not, completed three days before his 94th birthday.

The old iconoclast's stamina was typified in the preface to Farfetched Fables, completed in 1949: "As I have now entered my 93rd year, my fans must not expect more from me than a few crumbs dropped from the literary loaves I distributed in my prime, plus a few speculations as to what may happen in the next million light years that are troubling me in the queer second wind that follows second childhood." "Life is no brief candle to me." he once wrote.
