Lesley Sharp, Marc Warren and Diana Vickers are to star in the first major West End revival of Jim Cartwright’s multi award-winning play, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.
This wonderfully funny, incredibly moving play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, out of control mother Mari.
Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of famous divas, including Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield.
When Mari starts dating small-time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he’s her last chance for a better life. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she’s his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved.
Not everyone is going to get what they want.
