James McAvoy comes home

Now onsale!

Hollywood heavyweight James McAvoy returns to Scotland in the Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal, The Ruling Class) helmed revival of Edmond Rostand's 1897 play, Cyrano de Bergerac. Adapted by Martin Crimp, Cyrano de Bergerac follows a swashbuckling soldier whose quest for true love makes him confront his biggest insecurity... his rather larger nose.

A story about the power of love and the art of wordplay, Edmond Rostand's original Cyrano de Bergerac was famed for featuring some of the theatre's most ingenious lines. An ever-enduring masterpiece, don't miss your chance to see James McAvoy star in this rarely revived production!


A firm block-buster favourite for his starring roles in X-Men, Atonement, Split plus many many more (the list really does go on), McAvoy was last seen in the West End in 2015's The Ruling Class, also directed by Lloyd, at the Trafalgar Studios. McAvoy's stirring performance as Jack Gurney earned the star his second Olivier Award nomination for Best Actor and the Evening Standard award for Best Actor. McAvoy's other West End credits include his Olivier Award-nominated turn as Macbeth in 2013 Trafalgar Studios production and Three Days of Rain at the Apollo Theatre, for which he gained his first Olivier Award nomination in 2009.

What we thought

unique THRILLING Unexpected

Although its base material is still dazzling Jamie Lloyd's production transforms the 19th century masterpiece into a 21st century delight. Coupled with a stellar cast, and crew, this version of Cyrano de Bergerac is nothing like you've ever seen

Hollywood star James McAvoy has returned to the West End in this incredibly modern staging of Edmond Rostand's 19th-century play, Cyrano de Bergerac. B
