Product Description

Review

Writer Glyn Maxwell, a master of wry wit, has returned for his third Chester assignment... The writer's main strengths are his sense of humour and poetic turn of phrase so being asked to adapt a work where both are such vital elements must have been a dream come true. --Chester Chronicle

The comedy of the situation is brought right to the front thanks to a witty script full of rhyme from Glyn Maxwell, who has over the past three years helped bring life to many well known stories here at the Open Air Theatre, but none have felt so rounded and complete than his adaptation of this classic story. --The Public Reviews

The combination of nifty team work and Maxwell's accessible language stands out as much as Cyrano's conk, giving a classic drama the common touch. And that's surely what good alfresco summer theatre is all about. --The Stage

About the Author

"Glyn Maxwell's plays staged in the UK and the USA include The Lifeblood, which was British Theatre Guide's 'Best Play' at Edinburgh in 2004, Broken Journey and The Only Girl in the World (both Time Out Critics' Choices). Merlin and the Woods of Time (2011) and Masters Are You Mad? (2012) were both written for Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre; Liberty was staged at Shakespeare's Globe in 2008. His poetry has won several major prizes and his latest collection, Pluto, was published this year by Picador. Oberon Books publishes his Plays One (The Lifeblood, Wolfpit and The Only Girl in the World), Plays Two (Broken Journey, Best Man Speech and The Last Valentine), The Forever Waltz, Liberty, After Troy, Merlin and the Woods of Time and Masters Are You Mad? as well as his best-selling critical guidebook On Poetry."
