A genius with language, but convinced of his own ugliness, Cyrano secretly loves the radiant Roxane. While Roxane is in love with the beautiful but inarticulate Christian.
Cyrano’s generous offer to act as go-between sets in motion a poignant and often hilarious love-triangle, in which each character is torn between the lure of physical attraction and the seductive power of words.
Martin Crimp’s adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac premiered at the Playhouse Theatre, London, in November 2019.
Cuts to the core of a classic and what it means to be alive. I defy anyone not to fall in love with it.
Mesmerising . . . Crimp gives us sinuous hip-hop verse that is grandiloquent and swaggering when it needs to be, but is also witty and, yes, tender . . . an unforgettable evening.
A piece of pure theatre, the most breathtakingly exciting show in London right now.
‘A new text by Martin Crimp that is diabolically wily . . . Bravo.’
