Cyrano loves Roxanne. Roxanne adores Christian. Christian needs help. Cyrano has it all - sensitive, strong, and unrivalled swordsman, a brilliant poet, the ideal man... well almost. Christian can hardly string a sentence together, but he's handsome beyond words. What unites these men? The love of one woman - Roxanne. With Christian's looks and Cyrano's way with words they conspire to make the perfect man and woo Roxanne. But what has Roxanne really fallen for? Christian's looks or Cyrano's mind?Performers Angela Bain (Bellerose/Duenna/Mother Marguerite/Ensemble), Adam Barlow (Christian), Paul Barnhill (Ragueneau), Andy Cryer (De Guiche), Jessica Dyas (Buffet Girl/Lise Ragueneau/Sister Claire/Ensemble), Christian Edwards (Cyrano), Michael Hugo (Ligniere/Monfleury/Ensemble), Anthony Hunt (Cavalryman/Poet 1/Cadet 1/Friar/Ensemble), Francesca Mills (Pickpocket/Apprentice/Sister Martha/Ensemble), Perry Moore (Valvert/Lady/Poet 3/Cadet 3/Ensemble), Sharon Singh (Roxane), Robert Wade (Musketeer/Poet 2/Cadet 2/Ensemble), Andrew Whitehead (Le Bret).

Henry Afton (30Apr17): Saw this in Cheltenham. Excellent. This thoroughly enjoyable production brings out the fun and humour in Rostand's great creation, whilst retaining the seriousness the theme (love in an imperfect world) demands. This is achieved through the addition of music (entirely cast played) and occasional contemporary references added to an otherwise faithful translation. Well done for bringing such a romantic piece of art to today's cynical anti-heroic culture.
