Cyrano de Bergerac
James McAvoy will star in a new production of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, freely adapted by Martin Crimp and directed by Jamie Lloyd, in November 2019.
Cyrano de Bergerac sees Jamie Lloyd and James McAvoy continue their long-standing collaboration following The Ruling Class and Macbeth at Trafalgar Studios, Three Days of Rain at Apollo Theatre and Heart of Darkness for BBC Radio 4. The production opens at the Playhouse Theatre on 6 December, with previews from 27 November and runs until 29 February.
Supported by British Airways, the Jamie Lloyd Company will also be deepening its commitment to making theatre more accessible across their season at the Playhouse - offering 15,000 free tickets to first time theatre-goers (invited through a special outreach programme) and 15,000 tickets at £15 for key workers, under 30s, and those receiving job seeker’s allowance or other government benefits. Information about how to benefit from these tickets will be released in September.
