James McAvoy to star in Cyrano de Bergerac
Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac is being reimagined and freely adapted by Martin Crimp. Cyrano is a strong-willed man of many talents, a soldier, a duelist, a poet and a musician. However, his abnormally large nose makes him unsure of himself. He is, however, sure that no one would ever be able to love him as he is. Roxanne is the object of his affection, but he knows that nothing can come of his feelings for her. He is dejected when she shares with him her love for the handsome young Christian and extracts from him a promise to keep her beloved safe. What lengths will Cyrano go to in order to keep his promise? Will his words ever be able to overcome his physical appearance? What will become of his unrequited love?
