Open Air Theatre: Cyrano (Ticketed)

Friday 10 June 2016
Doors open 6.30pm for 7.15pm start

The Company presents a promenade performance* of Cyrano!

A story of love, swashbuckling honour, torn allegiances and a large nose! Come and enjoy the spectacle, as the Museum’s medieval Market Square is filled with fast action, live music and songs based on traditional Sussex folk tunes.

Built around John Wells’ adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s classic play, and developed specially for the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum, this outdoor performance is suitable for anyone aged 8 years and over. Adapted by Suzi Hopkins, directed by Stephen Israel, with musical composition by Mike Simmonds.
