I have been searching high and low for a short script due to the limitation of class time, and the fixed number of students.  I literally jumped for joy the moment I finished reading this version.  As of the time of writing, we have not started rehearsal yet, but I think eventually I would feel more or less the same as Ed Fitzgerald's experience.  Please note I have a very small class, four girls, and seven boys and that is why it fits our class perfectly.  A few characters are omitted in this version.  If you are looking for a script for a bigger class, this may not be what you want.  The script also gives some suggestions to make the set very simple.  I am thinking of using the projection of images to depict the locations and using sound effects off stage to depict the war situation.  There are a few geeky guys in my class and I am sure they will have lots of fun helping me with that.

I teach at a Middle School for Gifted children. I was excited when I saw this title and my students chose it for production. The classic story offered my students some challenging roles, costume hurdles, the opportunity to learn sword fighting techniques, special effects makeup, etc. In short, my students loved this version. We took time to see the unabridged work, so that my students could realize what had been omitted, but on the whole this is a masterful job of telling the meat of the story in a one-act format. Kudos! I highly recommend this play for students looking for a play with some real content and some acting challenges. My students loved it.

This one act version is short which worked very well with class time. Students were able to read the entire play in a class period. However due to the story line there is not a lot of room for every student to have an equal reading part. The one act version also strays a lot from the original play version by Edmond Rostand, but the love triangle remains. The ending tragic, death of Cyrano was my students' favorite part.
