Filament is proud to present the first production of the Spring Season, Cyrano. French nobleman Cyrano de Bergerac is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but a magnificent Mount Everest of a nose blocks his path to true love. The tongue-tied Christian borrows Cyrano’s words to woo the beautiful Roxane – but is she falling for Christian’s looks or Cyrano’s heart?

From Parisian balconies to bloody battlefields, Cyrano is a lightning-paced romance of duels, poetry, panache, sacrifice – and one enormous nose.
