James McAvoy returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac.
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?
This classic play is brought to life by Martin Crimp. Its linguistic ingenuity celebrates Cyrano’s powerful resistance against overwhelming odds.
