The Human Voice Tickets
The Human Voice Information
Ruth Wilson reunites with Ivo van Hove for their latest collaboration — The Human Voice — at the Harold Pinter Theatre. The heart wrenching monologue tells of a woman whose love life is changed in one phone call. The Human Voice tickets are available on London Theatre now.
At the start of The Human Voice, a young woman speaks to her lover on the telephone. They’ve been together for five years, so she’s just expecting this to be a typical phonecall. When the unnamed man declares his plans to marry another woman, our central character is shaken. Crying into the telephone, her heart breaks over the course of one last conversation with her former lover. In a time of hyperconnectivity and loneliness, The Human Voice explores the importance of love and being in touch with your own emotions. A lot can happen over the course of an hour.
Ruth Wilson stars in the one-woman play for The Human Voice London performances. She’s a two-time Olivier Award-winning actress for A Streetcar Named Desire and Anna Christie, and has previously worked with director Ivo van Hove on Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre.
The Human Voice play is by the early 20th-century French poet and dramatist, Jean Cocteau. During his career, Cocteau penned plays and poems such as Les Enfants terribles, and even turned his hand to directing films. The Human Voice is one of Cocteau’s most well-known works, and has been adapted into films: a 2014 adaptation starring Sophia Loren, and a 2020 adaptation featuring Tilda Swinton.
Time is limited on this conversation though. The Human Voice London runs for 31 performances only. Get on the end of the telephone now.
