Cyrano De Bergerac
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
James McAvoy returns to the West End in an inventive new adaptation of Edmond Rostand's masterwork by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love. 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 De Bergerac - or can his mastery of language set Roxane's world alight?

Fresh from their triumphant Broadway transfer of Betrayal, The Jamie Lloyd Company's latest production blazes into the Playhouse Theatre with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano's powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
