About the Play:

Cyrano de Bergerac is a full-length drama adapted by Kate Hennig from the timeless classic romance by Edmond Rostand. Cyrano de Bergerac is not only a brilliant swordsman and talented musician: he has a gift for words, too. And yet, for all his panache, he feels unworthy of love. Why? Because of his unfeasibly large nose. Unable to profess his feelings to his lady love, Cyrano helps another man to woo her. From the acclaimed author of The Last Wife and The Virgin Trial comes a new adaptation of one of the finest love stories ever told.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a romantic tale of unrequited and selfless love. Cyrano de Bergerac is a swashbuckling seventeenth-century swordsman who can do anything… except tell Roxane, the woman he loves, how he feels. He's just too self-conscious about his unusually large nose. Roxane finds romance in words, and Cyrano is full of them, so when he sees the chance to ghostwrite love letters to her from an inarticulate, love-struck cadet, he takes it – but can he ever reveal himself? Could she ever love him for who he is? In turns funny, tender, and self-aware, this classic tale about the exquisite distress of loving from afar will find its way into the hearts of even the most skeptical. This contemporary translation by Kate Hennig is presented in prose, yet it thrillingly preserves the poetic beauty of Edmond Rostand's original verse.

Cyrano de Bergerac premiered in 2019 at the at the Royal George Theatre in Niagara-on-the-Lake during the Stratford Festival.
