Swashbuckling hero Cyrano loves Roxanne, but is embarrassed by his outrageous nose. Pretty-boy Christian wants Cyrano's help in wooing Roxanne. Roxanne swoons for Christian, but falls in love with Cyrano's soul. Sword fights! Romance and heartbreak! Insult humor! One of the essentials, in six tragicomic scenes for students. Can be used in Language Arts or Drama, as a supplement in World History (the cavaliers) or as meaningful activity for a substitute. Adapted from Edmond Rostand's play in the public domain by Michael Fountain.
