Cyrano de Bergerac

$39.95

This play is the story of an accomplished soldier and poet who believes his darling Roxane can never love him because of his humongous nose. He therefore undertakes the task of helping a handsome, but not very intelligent gentleman win her love, while he lives vicariously by writing love letters for him.

Since Cyrano de Bergerac was originally written in rhyme, this adaptation of the play is also told in rhyming couplets. Therefore, it is slightly more difficult than some of the other plays in this collection, but it is highly entertaining, lots of fun and definitely worth the challenge! Suggested cast of 15-25 members. Preview script.
