CYRANO DE BERGERAC
With David Wenham
Soldier and poet, the finest swordsman in France, a man of exquisite panache, Cyrano de Bergerac would be more than a worthy suitor to the beautiful and witty Roxanne, except for the monstrous nose that blights his face. When the handsome recruit, Christian, falls for her too, Cyrano sees his chance to woo her - though not to win her.

I am currently lost in a reminiscence of taking my Mum to Man of La Mancha at the Westbury Music Fair. About halfway through she whispers to me, "I don't think there's anything wrong with his nose." Fifteen minutes later, my brain explains it to me and I nearly choke trying not to laugh out loud.
