Cyrano de Bergerac, written by Edmond Rostan, is being reimagined by Martin Crimp, directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring James McAvoy. Running from the 27 November 2019 to 29 February 2020 at the Playhouse Theatre.
Cyrano is a strong-willed man with a multitude of talents, from being a duelist, a poet and a musician all the way to being a soldier. There is one thing that causes Cyrano do be unsure of himself, his abnormally large nose. He is sure of one thing though, that no one will ever be able to love him as he is. Cyrano’s affections are directed to Roxanne and knows that his feelings for her will never be reciprocated. He is dejected when she confides in him her love of the handsome young Christian and extracts from hm a promise to keep her beloved safe. But, how far will Cyrano go to keep his promise? Will his words ever overcome his physical appearance? And will his love be forever unrequited?
