Theatre Works proudly presents

The Human Voice
By Jean Cocteau
Directed by Briony Dunn

A woman lies dead. A telephone rings. Her last chance to speak to an ex-lover…

Awakening from this limbo she holds the receiver to her temple. She must look after the man she loves, even if it grinds her into the fetid rot of systemic power that wreaks havoc on her body. But what will it take to break the cycle and work her way out?

Will it kill her or free her?

Set in a patriarchal purgatory and playing as a part of the 2022 Theatre Works season, theatre lovers are invited to witness a tour de force performance by renowned actor Jane Montgomery Griffiths. Complete with a compelling, original translation of the play Jean Cocteau believed was impossible to perform, this superb addition to the Melbourne Arts Calendar is not to be missed.

One of Australia’s longest-running independent theatres, Theatre Works is constantly reinvigorating and reimagining the sector by providing a hotbed for artist and audience development. They strive to champion artists and work that embrace difference and celebrate risk, working to provide a platform for marginalised conversations and voices. The Human Voice will be first inhouse Theatre Works produced season with the 2022 evolution of the organisation.

This production is proudly supported by Creative Victoria, City of Port Phillip, RISE Fund and the Besen Foundation.
