The Human Voice

La Voix Humaine


Jean Cocteau's monologue for an actress was first performed in 1930 and runs the gamut of emotions of a woman, alone in her bedroom, awaiting, then receiving, a phone call from her lover who has recently left her."As the style of this play excludes anything resembling vigour, the author recommends that the actress who plays it should not inject any of the bitterness of a woman scored, or any rancour. The character is a feeble victim, hopelessly in love; she tries only one ruse; to offer to the man an opportunity to admit his lie, not leave this unhappy memory.The actress should give the impression that she is bleeding, losing her life's blood, like a wounded beast, finishing the play as if the bedroom is drenched in blood.
