North Bristol’s awrad-winni8ng Kelvin Players continue their 90th birthday celebrations with Edmund Rostand’s great French play.
The story of Savinien II de Cyrano de Bergerac was first told by his friend, Henri le Bret, two years after Cyrano’s death. It was retold by Edmund Rostand in 1897 when he wrote the play Cyrano de Bergerac.
The story of Cyrano’s exploits as a swordsman and poet desperately in love is told by the nuns in the convent where Cyrano spends his later days, recounting his adventures.
Adam Healey plays the swashbuckling hero poet who has loved Roxane (Julie Clerc) since they were children together. When the handsome but ineloquent Christian de Neuvillette (Natalie Ling) arrives on the scene, Roxane is smitten. Such is Cyrano’s love for Roxane that he resolves to selflessly assist Christian to woo her with his silver-tongued verses.
The actors have been put through their paces by Stagefight choreographer Raph Aldis.
Oct 15-19, 7.30pm, £12 & £15.
