CASTING

Sonia Friedman Productions has revealed that Ruth Wilson will star in Ivo van Hove’s adaptation of Jean Cocteau’s “The Human Voice,” which he also directs with design by Jan Versweyveld. The play was originally produced by Internationaal Theater Amsterdam. The production opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre on March 22, 2022, with previews from March 17, and runs for three weeks through April 9.

Cocteau’s novella was most recently adapted as a short by Pedro Almodovar, starring Tilda Swinton.
