1897. Edmond Rostand is a struggling playwright whose inspiration has dried-up. Thanks to his admirer Sarah Bernhardt, he is approached by the greatest actor of the day, Constant Coquelin, who absolutely insists on playing in his next play and wants to premiere it three weeks after. To much disdain of his entourage, he must resume to work and write an heroic comedy in verse. But all he has so far is a title: Cyrano de Bergerac.

Preceded by an introduction with director Alexis Michalik in conversation with the cast of the stage production of Edmond de Bergerac (30 Apr – 4 May at the Richmond Theatre), actors Freddie Fox, Henry Goodman, Josie Lawrence and Chizzy Akodolu and followed by a Q&A with director Alexis Michalik
