This French play written entirely in verse is based on the life of Cyrano de Bergerac. Cyrano is known for being a poet, musician and a soldier with skill at dueling. He is in love with Roxane, but his self-doubt, stemming form his overly large nose, has him afraid to declare his love. Roxane tells Cyrano she loves Christian and begs him to protect him. Both men are in love with Roxane and Cyrano agrees to help Christian with love letters for her. Things go amiss and the plot entangles these three in a classic love triangle with some interesting twists.
