Directed by Jamie Lloyed, the Drumchapel actor will reprise his role as the protagonist, Cyrano, a man who almost has it all, but longs to win the heart of his true love despite his extraordinarily large nose and the stigma that comes with it.

Jamie Lloyd said: “It is incredibly exciting to confirm the return of Cyrano de Bergerac as part of our 2022 season, bringing James McAvoy home to Glasgow, while continuing our access ticket scheme, which will enable people with limited access to the arts to experience our work.”

Glasgow Times:

James Haworth, Theatre Director at Theatre Royal, Glasgow, said: “Welcoming James McAvoy home to perform at Theatre Royal is an honour. This is undoubtedly among one of the most exciting and prestigious productions to have been staged at Theatre Royal and we predict a sell-out run.”
