The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
The Rise and Fall of Little Voice A play by Jim Cartwright. Directed by Justin Stephens Season 3 2014: 20 August to 6 September By special arrangement with Origin Theatrical Pty Ltd This wonderfully funny, incredibly moving play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, abusive mother Mari. Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of famous divas including Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield. When Mari starts dating small time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he's her last chance for a better life. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she's his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved. Not everyone is going to get what they want. The tale of Little Voice provides a humorous, yet moving, display of family life. The play moves to a hilarious and moving climax when she finally finds her own personality and voice - and it's far from "little"!
