Show details


James McAvoy returns to the West End in an inventive new adaptation of Edmond Rostand's masterwork by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.

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?

Fresh from their triumphant Broadway transfer of Betrayal, The Jamie Lloyd Company's latest production blazes into the Playhouse Theatre with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano's powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.


The performance of on Thursday, 20 February will be filmed live for National Theatre Live.

Please note earlier performance start time of 7pm.

Latecomers will not be admitted.

This is a studio performance.

There will be several cameras in the auditorium and views of the stage may be blocked at any time during the performance.
