James McAvoy returns to the West End for 5-weeks only!
The Jamie Lloyd Company’s Olivier award-winning production of Cyrano De Bergerac returns to the West End, following a sold-out season in London in 2019. Cyrano de Bergerac tickets are now booking for this limited 5-week West End run.
James McAvoy reprises his critically acclaimed role in this unmissable revival of Edmond Rostand’s masterwork, inventively and ingeniously adapted by Martin Crimp. Jamie Lloyd directs a world-class cast, in an electrifying ensemble performance that celebrates linguistic ingenuity and the power of human connection.
Cyrano de Bergerac sees Jamie Lloyd and James McAvoy continue their long-standing collaboration following The Ruling Class and Macbeth at Trafalgar Studios, Three Days of Rain at Apollo Theatre and Heart of Darkness for BBC Radio 4.
Cyrano de Bergerac is booking from 3 February 2022 until 12 March 2022 at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
What is Cyrano de Bergerac about?
Fierce with a pen and notorious with a sword, Cyrano de Bergerac can do anything … except tell Roxane, the woman he loves, how he feels. He’s just too self-conscious about his unusually large nose.
Roxane is in love with words, so when Cyrano is offered the chance to ghostwrite love letters to her from an inarticulate, love-struck cadet, he takes it — but can he ever reveal himself?
A breathtaking tale about the exquisite torture of loving from afar, for anyone who has ever stood beneath a window.
