Get ready to meet the man behind the nose and discover the hilarious comedy behind the celebrated story of Cyrano de Bergerac

It's Paris, 1895. Edmond (Freddie Fox) is a struggling playwright with writer's block. His last play was a flop. He's down on his luck. Until he helps his best friend Leo woo a girl called Jeanne by writing romantic letters to her as if from him...and has a brilliant idea for the plot of his brand new play, Cyrano de Bergerac.

With the help of a celebrated actor called Coquelin (Henry Goodman), a theatrical legend called Sarah (Josie Lawrence), and a faded star called Maria (Chizzy Akudolu), Edmond starts writing again. But will he finish his masterpiece? Will the play be a hit? And will Jeanne ever discover that Leo's love letters were really written by Edmond?

Edmond De Bergerac is the triumphant hit comedy that took France by storm and now makes its English-language premiere at The REP.
