It is the story of a breakup by a phone call. A woman still in love, even when she is being abandoned. The intented purpose of Jean Cocteau when writing the play was to shock the audience with a „scandal of commonplace”. The cruelty of the play resides in what Cocteau named as: the arbitrary rupture – a common gesture in an ordinary existence.
