1897, Paris in the ‘Belle Epoque’.
Edmond Rostand is a playwright of potential genius.
Unfortunately, all he has written until now has been a flop. He is paralyzed by the sight of a blank page and his inspiration has dried up. Thanks to his admirer Sarah Bernhardt, he is approached by the greatest actor of the day, Constant Coquelin, who absolutely insists on playing in his next play. And he wants to premiere it in three weeks! The only problem: Edmond has not yet written it, and has no idea what story he will tell…
All he knows is its title: Cyrano de Bergerac.
Shakespeare in Love meets Cyrano de Bergerac. Funny and highly entertaining, romantic and yet modern, Edmond will captivate you with its sharp lines, its clumsy and poetic hero and its frenetic rhythm.
Adapted from the monumentally successful play Edmond: the biggest success in France since The Dinner Game!
