CYRANO DE BERGERAC
To 29 February
A chance to see James McAvoy perform on stage shouldn’t be missed. He has a string of movie credits (including four X-Men films, Atonement and The Last King of Scotland), TV shows (Shameless, His Dark Materials) and a number of theatre performances to his name. Now he takes on the role of the tortured Cyrano, who almost has it all, except for the heart of his true love. Why? Because of his enormous nose. Will narcissism be his ruin – or can he win Roxanne with his words?
