Cyrano de Bergerac is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but a “magnificent Mount Everest of a nose” blocks his path to true love. From Parisian balconies to bloody battlefields, tongue-tied Christian borrows Cyrano’s words to woo beautiful Roxane—but is she falling for Christian’s looks or Cyrano’s soul? A cast of three actors triangulates this classic into a lightning-paced romance of duels, panache, sacrifice—and an enormous schnoz.

 “Small cast, big nose and a major triumph.” -The Evening News, UK

“The pardox is that this simplified version of a great story draws its strength from a central performance that simplifies nothing at all, but allows children in the audiences to glimpse the full tragic-comic complexity of the character and to come to love it just the same.” -The Scotsman, UK
