December 1897, Paris. Playwright Edmond Rostand is approaching his thirtieth birthday with no new plays but a whole lot of worries. He has not written anything in two years and in desperation has promised a new play to the acting superstar, Constant Coquelin. A desperate Edmond draws on his problems to write a new comedy. It will be an unbelievable tale about the demands of his producers, the whims of the actresses, the jealousy of his wife, his doubting colleagues and the romantic adventures of his best friend. It shall be called Cyrano de Bergerac!
Meet the man behind the nose! Inspired by the story of Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond De Bergerac took France by storm and now makes its English-language premiere at The REP.
