THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE

Jim Cartwright

Starring Caroline O'Connor
 

A poignant and riotous musical comedy.

In a northern English town lives a girl with a secret.

Little Voice hides away in her bedroom surrounded by her late fathers’ precious record collection of the great 20th century divas. She escapes into the glamorous world of Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland whose stylings drift downstairs to a house ruled by her brassey, boozy mother Mari.

Mari, played by legend of Australian stage and screen Caroline O’Connor, is on the prowl, desperately looking for love in all the wrong places. Her latest suitor, Ray Say, discovers Little Voice’s hidden talent and is determined to force her into the spotlight to cash in his golden ticket to the Big Time.

"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
