James McAvoy in Cyrano de Bergerac: see it live from NT at Catford Mews
Join us at 6pm for drinks/food at Catford’s new cinema and food venue, followed by a special screening at 7pm of the National Theatre production of the famous story of Cyrano de Bergerac, the long-nosed lover.
James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement, His Dark Materials) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End. Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight? Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
