WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Stephen Rea stars in the title role of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac in a new version by Derek Mahon, directed by Howard Davies. Swordsman, poet, philosopher, Cyrano de Bergerac. His musketeer-heroics combine with rapier wit, but the bravado belies a passionate love for his exquisite cousin, Roxane. Too ugly to win her for himself, or so he thinks, he agrees to woo her on behalf of another. His tender verse gives voice to the inarticulate, dashing Christian, gaining him her heart just before both men depart for war.
