    The Human Voice tickets

    Ruth Wilson returns to the stage

    Award-winning actress Ruth Wilson returns to the stage in Ivo van Hove’s thrilling revival of The Human Voice.

    Originally set in 1930s Paris, the play is a monodrama about a woman on the phone to her lover of five years. He is due to marry someone else the next day, causing her to spiral into despair as she begs him to change his mind.

    Dramatist and novelist Jean Cocteau’s play was first staged in 1930 and has been adapted both on stage and screen, most recently with Tilda Swinton. Ivo van Hove’s (Network; All About Eve) production premiered in 2009, and has been performed in Sydney, New York and Dublin.

    Ruth Wilson is widely acclaimed for her work on-screen in TV dramas Luther and His Dark Materials. On stage, she is the recipient of two Olivier Awards for Anna Christie and A Streetcar Named Desire.

    Wilson reunites with visionary director van Hove after the pair’s bold and distinctive Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre in 2016.

    Ruth Wilson was brilliant in the play conveying different emotions being the only one on the stage. The play at times was a little hard to follow but overall a great display of acting.

    This really wan't my cup of tea. I just coudn't connect with the character at all and it felt incredibly dated. Such a shame as Ruth Wilson is such a good actress but I feel this production was just not for her
