LA VOIX HUMAINE
By Jean Cocteau (FR)
French original text, Swedish translation
Challenging monologue by Jean Cocteau (written 1928 / premiered 1930) about a young woman, who paralyzed in despair and on the verge of a depression, has the last telephone conversation with her loved one (who is never seen or heard) before he is to marry another woman. A very demanding work that calls for an actress who masters playing the darkest tones / strings of the emotional register.
