Cyrano de Bergerac

Wednesday 24 October - 2:00pm
Edwin Morgan's Scots translation of the play by Edmond Rostand at the Lyceum in Edinburgh.

The hugely romantic Cyrano de Bergerac is given a Caledonian heart in a new production of Edwin Morgan’s legendary Scots translation directed by Citizens Theatre Artistic Director Dominic Hill. The swashbuckling and flamboyant Cyrano has a personality as large as his nose but it’s this facial carbuncle that prevents him from revealing his love for Roxane. He lends his poetic skills instead to the more outwardly handsome Christian, who wins Roxane’s heart through his passionate ghost-written letters.
