ABOUT Cyrano de Bergerac

James McAvoy will star in a new production of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, freely adapted by Martin Crimp and directed by Jamie Lloyd, in November 2019.

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.

Fresh from their triumphant Broadway transfer fo Betrayal, The Jamie Lloyd Company’s latest production blazes into the Playhouse Theatre with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

Cyrano de Bergerac will run from 27 November 2019 until 29 February 2020 at the Playhouse Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

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.
