‘I’m whispering into your ear - and we couldn’t be further apart.’
 
A woman, a phone call, a final conversation.
 
In this extraordinary and prophetic monologue a woman fights for the person she loves. Jean Cocteau’s iconic play explores our desperate need for human relationships - and the machine that has changed them forever.
 
This production will present a brand new version of this classic text, 34 years since it was first produced at the Gate Theatre.

 

 

Thanks to the Comité Jean Cocteau.
