Cyrano De Bergerac

Martin Crimp‘s “breathtakingly exciting” (Evening Standard) radical new production tells the timeless story through spoken word, rap and contemporary poetry. This groundbreaking version presents Cyrano as a queer woman, challenging conventions and igniting the stage with her passion and wit.

A genius with language, Cyrano navigates the complexities of unspoken desire for the radiant Roxane, who is in love with the beautiful but inarticulate Christian. In this poignant and often hilarious exploration of love and self-discovery, Cyrano’s offer to act as go-between sets the stage for a captivating love triangle.

Join us for a theatrical tour-de-force that celebrates the power of ensemble storytelling, breathing new life into the classic tale. This is Cyrano as you’ve never seen her before, reimagined and reinvigorated for a new generation.
