A SHY young woman reveals her voice at Leamington’s Loft Theatre.
Jim Cartwright’s stage and screen hit The Rise and Fall of Little Voice plays from July 12 to 22.
Little Voice leads a quiet and unassuming life, but hides an amazing talent – she seeks companionship and joy from impersonating music’s most iconic singers from the safety and anonymity of her bedroom.
Her mother Mari however prefers the sound of her own voice, indulging in a life of booze, cheap thrills and seedy men.
When Mari starts dating local small-time impresario Ray, he forces Little Voice into the spotlight and her transformation astounds everyone.
But then the battle between mother and daughter truly erupts.
Director Viki Betts said: “It is not hard to see why The Rise and Fall of Little Voice has been referred to as a ‘northern fairytale’. A tale of an individual who transforms despite the realities and expectations of their community.
“Jim Cartwright mixes the ‘real’ with the extraordinary and the title character in this play is just that. Additionally, Cartwright has a passion to showcase northern voices in his work and Little Voice is all about finding your voice in a noisy world.”
