Cyrano de Bergerac, written by Edmond Rostand in 1897, is a finely crafted romantic comedy exploring the love-triangle between Cyrano, a poet and soldier with an impossibly gigantic nose, who loves the beautiful Roxane but lacks the courage to tell her, wooing her instead through the good looks of a young hero, Christian. Regarded as a theatrical masterpiece, Cyrano de Bergerac remains relevant now as its ideas and concerns are simply and profoundly human. This Sport for Jove Theatre Company production is directed by Damien Ryan who also plays the role of Cyrano de Bergerac.
Director, Damien Ryan, is my guest today.
