National Theatre Encore: Cyrano de Bergerac

Director
Jamie Lloyd
Certificate
15
Running Time
186 mins

James McAvoy stars as old big nose in this modern production of Rostand’s classic, whose wordplay takes the form of rap battles, street slang and even occasional beatboxing.

 

Anita-Joy Uwajeh is cast as Roxane, with Eben Figueiredo as Cyrano’s hunky-yet-dim love rival Christian. Martin Crimp‘s new adaptation is directed by Jamie Lloyd.
