Preview – The Rise and Fall of Little Voice at Park Theatre

06 August, 2018

Mother and daughter duo Rafaella Hutchinson and Sally George are to be the first ever family pairing to star as the reclusive Little Voice and meddling mother Mari in Jim Cartwright’s The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.  Performances will be from 16 August – 15 September 2018.

The new production coming to Park Theatre, directed by Tom Latter and Associate directed by Anita Dobson, will also feature Linford Johnson, Kevin McMonagle, Jamie-Rose Monk and Shaun Prendergast in the much-beloved story of an undiscovered and introverted virtuoso thrust into the spotlight.

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 feel 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 phone line.

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.
