Drama Storytelling New work

An original adaptation of Jean Cocteau's play co-created by Vladimir Rovinsky and Nadine DuBois.

A woman alone in her appartment. She talks on the telephone with her lover of the last five years, but the audience hears only one half of the conversation - hers. As conversation grows increasingly dramatic, the true complexities of their relationship are revealed. As if this isn't enough, the phone frequently cuts off and phone lines are crossed, leading to tension and misunderstanding.

This new version of Jean Cocteau's classic features fourth wall breaking moments, when the actress can freely comment on the events that the audience has just observed, inserting a narrative drawn from her own life experiences and even does some singing.
