About the plays

'The Flawed Flautist'

Set in adjoining rehearsal rooms of the fictional Riverside Studios, a pianist and a flautist meet under trying circumstances. Whether the studio manager can produce harmony from the discord remains to be seen (and heard). 

 

 'The Singular Act of Cyrano de Bergerac'

This is a concertinaed, prose version, of Edmond Rostand's original, with each scene matching the five acts of the full play.

The vast cast of the original is reduced to just ten characters, played by our three actors. The main characters of the play are: Christian (a handsome, but tongue-tied, soldier), Roxane (a beautiful woman of good standing) and Cyrano de Bergerac (Roxane's cousin - A fearless, political, and poetic soldier, but one not known for his good looks.)

Christian, seeking to court Roxane, desperately needs Cyrano's linguistic skills to promote his suit. Outpourings of love ensue, but the Siege of Arras cruelly intervenes. Cyrano is left to comfort and console Roxane in her retreat, while his own situation is far from safe.

We are grateful to Alistair Briche for permission to use both of his plays royalty free.
