The hugely romantic Cyrano de Bergerac is given a Caledonian heart in a new production of Edwin Morgan’s Glaswegian-Scots translation, directed by Citizens Theatre Artistic Director Dominic Hill.

The swashbuckling and flamboyant Cyrano’s low self-image prevents him from revealing his love to Roxanne. He lends his poetic skills instead to the outwardly handsome Christian, who wins Roxanne’s heart through his passionate ghost-written letters. Throughout his adventurous life, Cyrano continues to put quill to parchment, risking his life in the process, to express his true feelings.

An ensemble of actors and musicians use Morgan’s chewy Scots verse to create a fresh take on the enduringly popular period piece, first seen in a legendary production by Communicado 25 years ago. Rostand’s original story was most famously given the Hollywood treatment in the Steve Martin comedy, Roxanne.

A vivid and completely joyous event, Cyrano de Bergerac will be a celebration of theatre itself, and is presented by the Citizens Theatre at Tramway and the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, and tours to Eden Court Theatre, Inverness.
