The Rise & Fall of Little Voice
Written by English dramatist Jim Cartwright in 1992, Olivier Award-winning Best Comedy The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is a play with music (some might say a musical!) that tells the heartwarming story of a reclusive Northern girl-next-door whose remarkable ability to impersonate the great singers of old – including Cilla Black, Edif Piaf, Marilyn Monroe and many others – brings her into the spotlight.
Pushed by her foul-mouthed, hard-drinking mother Mari and Mari’s equally unappealing talent agent boyfriend RaySay, timid ‘Little Voice’ will need to conquer more than just stage-fright if she is to find her own voice in the world.
Michael Strassen directs this major new Barn Theatre production.
