Cyrano de Bergerac is a man of many talents; he is a soldier, a musician, and a lovelorn poet. Soon he falls for the beautiful Roxanne, but fears his big nose will stop him finding happiness. Will the ugliness he sees stop him from “being loved by even an ugly woman”?

Cyrano de Bergerac is designed by Soutra Gilmour, with lighting design by Jon Clark, sound and composition by Ben and Max Ringham, casting by Stuart Burt and fight direction by Kate Waters.
