From the acclaimed author of The Last Wife and The Virgin Trial comes a new adaptation of one of the finest love stories ever told.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a swashbuckling seventeenth-century swordsman who can do anything . . . except tell Roxane, the woman he loves, how he feels. He’s just too self-conscious about his unusually large nose. Roxane finds romance in words, and Cyrano is full of them, so when he sees the chance to ghostwrite love letters to her from an inarticulate, love-struck cadet, he takes it—but can he ever reveal himself? Could she ever love him for who he is? In turns funny, tender, and self-aware, this classic tale about the exquisite distress of loving from afar will find its way into the hearts of even the most skeptical.

In Hennig’s adaptation, 14 actors can play 25 characters (the original has over 60 characters), and she has brought more of Roxane’s perspective to light.

She has also written in prose rather than verse, retaining much of Rostand’s original poetry while allowing the text to be accessible to the contemporary reader.

Kate Hennig is a playwright, actor, teacher, and director. Her play The Last Wife premiered at the Stratford Festival in 2015 and has since had more than ten productions across Canada and the United States, and will premiere in Sydney, Australia, in September 2019. The Virgin Trial won the 2017 Carol Bolt Award for Best New Play, was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, and has had several subsequent regional productions. For the Shaw Festival, Kate has translated and adapted Cyrano de Bergerac and Oscar Wilde’s stories for children, Wilde Tales. Kate is Associate Artistic Director at the Shaw Festival and resides in Stratford, Ontario.
