Cocteau, Terhi Panula, Charles Gonzalès – Kansallisteatteri

The Human Voice (French: La Voix humaine) is a monodrama first staged at the Comédie-Française in 1930, written two years earlier by Jean Cocteau. It is set in Paris, where a still-quite-young woman is on the phone with her lover of the last five years. He is to marry another woman the next day, which causes her to despair. The monologue triggers the woman’s crippling depression.

French director Charles Gonzalès adapts the iconic French monologue for Finnish actress Terhi Panula on the National Theatre stage.
