The Park Theatre hosts a revival of The Rise And Fall of Little Voice, the beloved story of a timid but brilliant singer, led by real life mother and daughter Sally George and Rafaella Hutchinson.

George and Hutchinson are the first ever family pairing to star in this charming show, which centres on a timid and brilliant young woman, Little Voice, who 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 be 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 phoneline. When local impresario Ray forces Little Voice into the spotlight, her transformation astounds everyone. Then the battle between mother and daughter truly erupts.

The new production of The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice at the Park Theatre is directed by Tom Latter and Associate Directed by Anita Dobson. The show also features 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.

Jim Cartwright’s plays are consistently performed around the world, where they have won numerous awards, and been translated into 30 languages. Written by Jim Cartwright in 1992, The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice was first performed at the National Theatre, and the Aldwych Theatre in the West End later that same year. The production was nominated for six Olivier Awards, was winner of The Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy of the Year in 1992, and the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1993. It opened on Broadway in 1995 and was adapted into the film Little Voice in 1998.

Funny, brutal, beautiful and sad, Cartwright’s timeless and ultimately uplifting The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice is a comic tragedy about finding your voice in a noisy world.
