A new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s romantic comedy Cyrano de Bergerac by Deborah McAndrew.

Paris, 1640

Cyrano de Bergerac, a brilliant poet and swordsman, finds himself deeply in love with his beautiful cousin Roxane.

Each day of his life is lived only for her - every poem he writes, every duel he fights. Despite his dash and his dare, Cyrano is afraid of revealing his true feelings certain she could never love him in return… for who would love a man with such an enormous nose?

Northern Broadsides bring its acclaimed charisma and exuberant performance style to this swashbuckling tale of unrequited love that will lift your spirits and make your heart ache.

Presented by Northern Broadsides in partnership with New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-Under-Lyme
