Heroes fit for action

...Between the play "Hey, somebody!" and another play Glory Stepanian — "the human Voice" by Jean Cocteau — a lot in common. Jean Cocteau, French playwright and absurdist, mystifier, one of the great men of his time. His works are masterpieces, his talent is limitless. He showed himself in art, taking strong positions and making something new and unique that distinguishes him from his contemporaries.


The magazine "French" ("La Langue Fransaise") No. 9, may 2007

Today in Moscow is not so common to see the performance in French. So every time the audience enjoyed this opportunity and do your best to attend such performances. However, this is now possible and without significant difficulty: in the Armenian theater in Moscow today you can see the production of one of the plays by Cocteau in its original version. It's a big event, especially if to take into account that the scene is one of the most complex and famous of his works — "the human Voice" ("La Voix humaine").

the Background "She was left face to face with the brutal truth — she's more unloved, dumped her. What can you do if you love someone with every particle of his body? Without him, the air she breathes, choking her ... a Phone call ... Breath ... On the other end the voice of her beloved. She may yet live, to breathe. Another call – one more breath ... And then you only hear the busy tone..."
