Act 5, Scene 1 Summary

Act five opens in the park of a convent of catholic nuns; it is Autumn and the leaves are falling from the trees. Fifteen years have passed since the war and the death of Christian. Several nuns and the convent Mother are sitting outside in the park chatting. Their talk turns to Cyrano and that he has come every Saturday for the last ten years and longer. He comes to visit his cousin who is in perpetual morning for her husband. They are, of course, talking about Roxane, and they reveal that she has taken up residence with the nuns since the death of Christian. The nuns are all obviously taken with Cyrano and look forward to his visits. De Guiche and Roxane appear, walking towards the nuns. The nuns retreat inside at the site of them.
