Cyrano ... the backstage story CHRIS a charming young mouse and his merry bunch of mice are living in one of the most beautiful and leading theatres of Paris: “La Comedie Francaise”… They enjoy a lovely life on the rhythm of rehearsals and performances, as long as they get rid of those constant cruel wars caused by the caretaker and the cats in the theatre. Wars for no reason: for fear, selfishness, refusing to enjoy, to destroy the pleasure, for stupidity and evil. But the kitten-cat, Miss TY, a few months old, saved by Chris from the claws of Romeo, the caretakers’ dog, the one that always causes major damage, refuses this destiny. The kitten considers the mouse Chris as her blood brother, her adoptive father, to big confusion of her relatives; they consider it as the greatest betrayal possible. Today, like all the others, the actors enter the stage for rehearsal. On that very moment everybody has to leave, who does not play: people, mice, cats and dogs, at the risk of banned from the theatre for good; no human being or animal will break this rule. On the contrary, as privileged audience, cats and mice enjoy the theatre event. After the rehearsal, when the artists and technicians leave the scene, the skirmishes start all over again, fostered by the actor's play and the themes from the piece. The theatre play Cyrano de Bergerac is about courage, love, spirituality and poetry in letters. Therefore it turns out to be that not necessarily the strongest or the most beautiful will conquer, but the one with humor and spirit.
