The classic tragic story tells the tale a soulful poet/philosopher and expert duelist named Cyrano who falls in love with Roxanne, but is ashamed to woo her because of his huge nose.

The play is directed by UTSA English Faculty member Susan Arias and produced by UTSA English Associate Professor Bridget Drinka.
