Synopsis

James McAvoy returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live via satellite.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano - or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?


Martin Crimp's adaptation  and Jamie Lloyd's direction bring Edmond Rostand’s masterwork to life with linguistic ingenuity that celebrates Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
