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.
Mari sees Ray Say as her last chance. Ray Say sees Little Voice as his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved.
Painfully shy, Little Voice spends her days in the sanctuary of her bedroom impersonating the divas from her late, adored father’s record collection. Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Cilla Black – LV can do them all. Downstairs her frustrated, out of control mother fantasises of a better life. When she meets small time club agent Ray Say she thinks it’s her way out. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks it’s his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved.
‘It’s private’ cried Little Voice as Ray Say whispers, ‘You’re a star.’
