Cyrano de Bergerac

A Play in Five Acts

by Edmond Rostand, Gladys Thomas, Mary F. Guillemard

Very loosely based on the life of a French duelist and playwright, Cyrano de Bergerac is a play in verse that tells the tale of soldier who is gifted with every imaginable positive attribute -- except that of a handsome appearance. Because of his perceived ugliness (including a disproportionately large nose), Cyrano feels unworthy of the woman he loves and vents his emotions via other -- sometimes amusing, sometimes tragic -- channels.
