“It’s a production which supplies all the required braggadocio and swagger, but nonetheless displays a nose for the unexpected.”

By Deborah McAndrew, Directed by Conrad Nelson
Northern Broadsides and the New Vic Theatre join forces to bring their celebrated musical panache, acclaimed charisma and exuberant performance style to this swashbuckling tale of unrequited love set in the golden age of musketeers.
Cyrano de Bergerac, a brilliant poet and swordsman, finds himself deeply in love with his beautiful cousin Roxane.
Each day of his life is lived only for her – every poem he writes, every duel he fights. Despite his dash and his dare, Cyrano is afraid of revealing his true feelings certain she could never love him in return … for who would love a man with such an enormous nose?
A delightful evening of pure drama that will lift your spirits and make your heart ache.
Deborah McAndrew speaks about Cyrano, her love of writing, how she became a regular on Coronation Street and working with her husband and the Northern Broadsides team. Stage Door Johnny: Interviews By John Bowles
