THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE
By Jim Cartwright
Little Voice has a hidden talent. Alone in her room with only her dead father’s record collection for company, she sings along with the greatest divas of the 20th century with a voice that is pure gold. Downstairs, her hard drinking mother Mari is on the rampage – she’s after booze and a working phone line. When her latest squeeze Ray overhears LV’s secret talent, he realises that she may be his ticket to the big time. But LV is painfully shy and she will need to conquer more than her stage-fright if she’s going to find her own voice in the world.
Funny, brutal, beautiful and sad, this Northern comedy is packed with sensational tunes, bold humour and a gentle heart. Named in the top 50 plays of all time.
