‘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.

Critic reviews

Although the production has a claustrophobic look, the tech elements and boxed-in set risk making the audience feel remote, not fascinatedly voyeuristic

Evening Standard

Visually flashy production doesn’t best serve Jean Cocteau’s 1930 play

The Stage

This is an interesting curio, very well realised but it’s hard to recommend it as a satisfying evening of theatre

London Box Office

Nothing else on stage other than her pain


Leanne Best delivers a tour de force of despair

The Guardian

Incredibly moving acting and much food for thought
