About Cyrano de Bergerac

Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, National Theatre of Scotland and Citizens Theatre present
Cyrano de Bergerac
By Edmond Rostand
Translated by Edwin Morgan

But think: your mooth, ma wurds, collaboration! She’ll melt, she’ll no resist that conflagration!

A passionate comedy of love, war and noses.

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 Roxanne. He lends his poetic skills instead to the more outwardly handsome Christian, who wins Roxanne’s heart through his passionate ghost-written letters.

Through the years, Cyrano continues to put quill to parchment, risking his life in the process, to express his true feelings for the woman who sees him only as a rambunctious uncle until it’s almost too late…

An epic ensemble of actors and musicians use Morgan’s potent Scots verse to create a fresh take on this enduringly popular classic, first seen in a legendary production by Communicado 25 years ago. Brian Ferguson (A Number) plays the irresistible title character, while Tom Piper (Rhinoceros) designs a breath-taking set, with costumes from iconic British fashion designer Pam Hogg.

Cast includes: Brian Ferguson, Jessica Hardwick, Isobel McArthur, Nalini Chetty, Angus Miller, Keith Fleming, Gabriel Quigley, Maggie Bain, and Bhav Joshi

Co-produced with National Theatre of Scotland and Citizens Theatre.
