“Never—but whoever notices that nose he wears is sure to get a swordthrust for the attention”
I have no idea why it took me so long to finish such a short play. I've always wanted to read this, particularly since I remember being completely enamoured with the 1980s movie, Roxanne, as a child.
There are some amusing lines and I imagine it would make for an entertaining play. As someone who has been called upon to play the Cyrano role for the odd friend's love texts; I can see how it is a conceit that remains timeless.
In short, I'm happy to have read this and ticked it off the list. Sadly, I have little further comment to add.
