Cyrano has it all in 1600’s Paris! He’s a poet-philosopher who can out-fence and outwit any man. He’s brimming with brains, talent and vigour. But he has a grotesquely long nose that prevents him from courting his secret love, the beguiling Roxane, so he enlists the help of his friend, Christian, to woo Roxane in his place. Enjoy a ribald evening of wits, wordplay and swordplay that will answer the burning question—who will Roxane fall for: Christian or Cyrano?
Cyrano is directed by Mary Dwyer with set design by Arash Eshghpour, lighting design by David Buffham, costume design by Farnoosh Talebpour, sound design by Dave Fitzpatrick, fight direction by Naomi Priddle Hunter and featuring Chris Coculuzzi, Celeste Van Vroenhoven, Paul Cotton, Derek Perks, Stephen Flett, Henrik Thessen, Jessica McQueen, Michael Hiller, Janice Peters, Scott Simpson, Kurt Thomsen, Sandra Yeomans, Riley Anne Nelson, Kathy Plamondon, Kellen McRae, Ryan Abedi, Jackson Abrams and Paisley Aquarius.
Amicus has reunited Coculuzzi, Deans, and Dwyer who adapted and directed an 80 minute abridged version of Cyrano 10 years ago as part of the 2004 Toronto Fringe Festival. The production, presented as a ‘memory play’, was both a critical and commercial success. For this new production Coculuzzi and Deans have revisited their original script based on the English translations of Gladys Thomas and Mary F. Guillemard and Howard Thayer Kingsbury and expanded it to a full-length with a traditionally linear presentation.
