You may have seen one of many wonderful renditions of this great play (including Steve Martin’s excellent Roxanne) but nothing compares to the original. We will examine Rostand’s play, the excellent translation by Anthony Burgess which was so good it was translated into French for a film starring Gerard Depardieu, and ultimately see why this is such a magnificent work.
