NT Live: Cyrano de Bergerac

Cyrano de Bergerac

By Edmond Rostand, in a new version by Martin Crimp

Directed by Jamie Lloyd

Cast Includes James McAvoy

Duration: 180 mins (tbc)

A National Theatre Live Event by the Jamie Lloyd Company.

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, this performance was filmed in front of a live audience at the Playhouse Theatre 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.
