Cyrano de Bergerac, the latest show from Blue Sky Theatre debuts in the Garden at Victor Harbor this weekend, with shows running Friday through Sunday.

Saturdays show is sold out, but there are still tickets available for the opening night Friday, as well as Sundays performance. Gates at Brook Rd Garden open at 4pm.

The show takes on the story of Cyrano, a poet and soldier with an impossibly gigantic nose, who loves the beautiful Roxane but lacks the courage to tell her. He faces stiff competition from handsome yet tongue-tied Christian.

Events take a nosedive when war breaks out and more suitors emerge to poke their noses in.

Set in seventeeth century France, this accessible, cheeky version is directed by award-winning director Dave Simms.

“It’s the Australian premiere of this witty, modern adaptation of one of literature’s greatest love triangles”, said Simms. “It’s got everything. Romance, swordfights, heroic deeds and plenty of nose jokes.”

Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac is adapted by Glyn Maxwell and presented by arrangement with Origin Theatrical on behalf of Samuel French, Ltd.
