NT Encore: Cyrano de Bergerac

Relaxed Screening

James McAvoy reflected in a mirror

James McAvoy returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast from the West End.

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.

UK 2019 Dir Jamie Lloyd

Reviews

‘James McAvoy stuns in a piece of pure theatre‘
‘James McAvoy...proves a revelation in a super-smart stripped-back Cyrano that turns the play on its head and left me speechless with admiration‘
