About Cyrano de Bergerac

The Jamie Lloyd Company’s Olivier award-winning production of Cyrano De Bergerac returns, following a sold-out season at the Playhouse Theatre in 2019.

James McAvoy reprises his critically acclaimed role in this unmissable revival of Edmond Rostand’s masterwork, inventively and ingeniously adapted by Martin Crimp.

Jamie Lloyd directs a world-class cast, in an electrifying ensemble performance that celebrates linguistic ingenuity and the power of human connection.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of De Bergerac - or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight? Cyrano De Bergerac blazes into the Harold Pinter Theatre from 3 Feb for a strictly limited 5-week season.

Cyrano de Bergerac is back. After an Olivier Award-winning season in 2019, Cyrano de Bergerac will play a limited run at the Harold Pinter Theatre. James McAvoy plays the eponymous writer in Edmond Rostand’s play, freshly adapted by Martin Crimp to incorporate rapping and colloquial language. Cyrano de Bergerac tickets are available on TodayTix.

The Cyrano de Bergerac play sees the stellar title who seems to have everything at his disposal. Even though he’s a master with words, he’s yet to find a woman — his nose has distracted women. Cyrano pursues a woman named Roxane, but in a world where looks mean a great deal, can he woo her with words?

The Cyrano de Bergerac play is based on the life of Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac, a 17th-century French writer. His life inspired Edmond Rostand to write the eponymously-titled play, written two centuries later. Now, Cyrano de Bergerac has been given a new lease of life by Martin Crimp, who adapted the text to incorporate modern times. It’s directed by Jamie Lloyd, who has often worked with older texts, such as Doctor Faustus and Harold Pinter’s Betrayal.

Now, the Jamie Lloyd Company set up a new West End base at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Cyrano de Bergerac plays for five weeks, and The Seagull starring Emilia Clarke opens in 2022. Book Cyrano de Bergerac tickets on TodayTix now.

What to Watch For

  • Theatre changed the French language! Cyrano de Bergerac is famous for coining the word “panache” — Cyrano references his panache many times throughout the play, so listen out for it.
