Cyrano de Bergerac
NW England, N Wales & Ireland
Le True Histoire de Cyrano de Bergerac is the story of two men and their love for the beautiful Roxane.
Cyrano de Bergerac is a musketeer with the soul of a poet, the mind of a philosopher and a nose like a giant turnip! His embarrassment at his unseemly features and the fear that Roxane will reject him sends him on a valiant quest to woo Roxane on behalf of another, the dashing young swordsman, Christian.
But there’s more to this story. The tale takes an extra twist when the real Cyrano de Bergerac, a genuine poet and duelist from the 17th century, turns up in the performance to hide from the Inquisition who are trying to suppress his identity. The story of the real and the fictional Cyrano become intertwined as the characters fight together against “the tyrannies of falsehood, compromise, prejudice and cowardice.”
Adapted from Edmond Rostand’s novel by Helen Newall.
“A very impressive company.”
