Star James McAvoy (X-Men, Repentance) returns to the London stage in an inventive new adaptation of the popular classic Cyrano from Bergerac. Edmund Rostand's masterpiece, edited by playwright Martin Crimp (In the Republic of Happiness), is directed by Jamie Lloyd, who cast McAvoy in the theaters in the dramas Three Rainy Days, Macbeth and the comedy The Fourteenth by Count Gurney. The live broadcast will feature the Playhouse Theater in the West End.
Renowned for his sharp pen and sword, Cyrano has almost everything - if only he could win the heart of his beloved Roxane. The only problem that prevents him is this, but a really big problem: his nose, which is as huge as his heart. Will a unique man be defeated by a narcissistic society? Or can his art of words illuminate Roxana's world?
Directed by the acclaimed Jamie Lloyd (NT Live: Mistakes of One Night, Betrayal of Tom Hiddleston), the famous play comes to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyran's strong and resonant defiance of conventions.
