In 17th century Paris at a time of political turbulence, there lived a flamboyant, swashbuckling, gallant hero. Blessed with a nose 'splendiferous' the not very attractive Cyrano de Bergerac loves passionately, but silently. The subject of that love was his childhood friend, the beautiful Roxanne, who only had eyes for another. Too late she discovers that the very eloquent words in the 'lettres d'amour' that she had fallen in love with belonged in fact to the heart and soul of Cyrano.

Claire was off before she had time to really understand what she was doing in the race in the first place! She always thought herself to be particularly ordinary and yet here she was with the roar of engines all around, behind the wheel of a solar powered racing car!

RIFF-RAFF is a musical - a rock musical which speaks to the young people of today about problems that face them. No answers are offered and no easy way out is shown. But the language is that of the young people and the most important message throughout the script, and shouted in a painful climax, is the right of young people to question the direction they are moving in. They do not have to be manipulated, they can question the world around them, they do have a right to explanations from the figures of authority in their lives.


Book and Lyrics by Lloyd Thomson and Nancy Brown. Lyrics by Albert Arlen. Music by C.J. Dennis.
