About the show

The simple telephone is the painful divide between the psychologically tormented protagonist and her departing lover in The Human Voice. Adapted from the work of the seminal French playwright, Jean Cocteau, Joe Sidek’s directorial debut explores the dark depths of depression through Susan Lankester’s virtuoso performance.

Replacing the original apartment setting with a changing room, the central character - a talented chanteuse - gaspingly experiences the twisting and turning cord of emotions as she gradually wilts away and breaks down.

"Art is a marriage of the conscious and the unconscious."

- Jean Cocteau

Joe Sidek shares his fascination of the human psyche in this devastating study of a person’s need for intimate connection, and their latent insecurities about love and loneliness.
