About the Show/Event
Information for Cyrano De Bergerac at The Watermill Theatre, Newbury (Play). Swordsman, poet, philosopher, Cyrano de Bergerac. His musketeer-heroics combine with rapier wit, but the bravado belies a passionate love for his exquisite cousin, Roxane. Too ugly to win her for himself, or so he thinks, he agrees to woo her on behalf of another. His tender verse gives voice to the inarticulate, dashing Christian, gaining him her heart just before both men depart for war. A wildly romantic story laced with swagger, gallantry and sacrifice.
Author Edmond Rostand. Presented by Watermill Young Company. Adapted by Glyn Maxwell. Director Seamus Allen. Design Cory Shipp.
