    Cyrano! His wit is as sharp as his sword, the enormity of his talent, intellect and passion matched only by the enormity of his, well, nose.

Romance rules the day in this story of his classic love triangle with the exquisite Roxane and the handsome and earnest, but verbally challenged, Christian. Learn More

    In 1789 in an Australian penal colony, a marine lieutenant decides to put on a play to celebrate the king's birthday. He casts the play with the English convicts who populate this distant prison camp. Few of them can read, let alone act, and the play is produced against a background of food shortages and barbaric punishments--brilliantly juxtaposed against the civilizing influence of theatrical endeavor.
