The new version of Edmond Rostand’s play is adapted by Martin Crimp, and kicks off a year-long season of work directed by Lloyd at the Playhouse when it opens on 27th November.
Cyrano de Bergerac follows the titular poet-playwriter whose monstrously large nose puts off his love interest Roxane. Despite his successful writing career, his inability to woo his love consumes him.
The next play to be announced in Lloyd’s West End season is Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House starring Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain, set to open in June.
