The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
Directed by Tom Latter
Cast: Sally George, Rafaella Hutchinson, Linford Johnson, Kevin McMonagle, Jamie Rose Monk and Shaun Prendergast
A timid and brilliant young woman, Little Voice has a hidden talent - she can sing like the greatest divas of the 20th Century.
Living a lonely life in a northern town, all she wants is to be safe in her room with her records. No chance with mother Mari on the rampage – she’s after booze, a man, a greasy breakfast, and a working phoneline.
When local impresario Ray forces Little Voice into the spotlight, her transformation astounds everyone. Then the battle between mother and daughter truly erupts.
Funny, brutal, beautiful and sad, Jim Cartwright’s timeless and ultimately uplifting tale is a comic tragedy about finding your voice in a noisy world.
"A northern showbiz fairytale, a backstreet Cinderella story, with a built-in kick" The Guardian
"Like everything Cartwright writes, Little Voice is playful, magical and terrifying, a view of the world from an unexpected angle, perpetrated by an imagination that notices the dust in the grooves of old records and finds poetry in garish, swanky clothes or the glitterball of a rowdy northern club" Sunday Times
