Cyrano de Bergerac

Production Company: National Theatre Live
Venue: The Corn Hall

National Theatre – Live

By Edmond Rostand, in a new version by Martin Crimp

Directed by Jamie Lloyd 

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

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?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

a super-smart stripped-back Cyrano that turns the play on its head and left me speechless with admiration.
