Ghosteater presents

The Human Voice 

by Jean Cocteau

In a version by Daniel Raggett


About the play: 

“This invisible line, threading its way from me to you, it’s the last thing holding us together.”

In the twilight of their relationship, two lovers share a final phone call. With poignant simplicity, this mesmerizing one-woman show weaves a tapestry of vulnerability and longing, inviting audiences to contemplate the price we pay for our digital connectivity. Through one woman’s emotional and desperate phone conversation, Cocteau explores how technology can both connect and isolate us, revealing the complex dynamics and vulnerabilities of human connection in the modern era.
