Cyrano de Bergerac
A New Prose Translation by John Murell
By Edmond Rostand
Translated by John Murrell

Edmond Rostand’s beloved classic, Cyrano de Bergerac, is an epic and heroic tale that has fascinated and enchanted generations. Not since 1938 has there been a more readable or stageable prose translation of this classic favourite. With a rich tapestry of gallant soldiers, starving poets, musketeers, marquises and bluestockings, Cyrano de Bergerac moves along with a fast-paced plot and a cast of delightful major and minor characters. At its heart is the chivalrous and intelligent Cyrano, masterful soldier, accomplished poet, ferocious orator, chivalrous lover … and the possessor of an extraordinary nasal appendage!

Cast of 5 women and 12 men, plus many minor characters.

"[Cyrano de Bergerac is a] brilliant … unforgettable … impressive achievement”
Edmonton Journal
