The Rise and Fall of Little Voice Jim Cartwright
Little Voice (LV) lives alone with her mother Mari, whose sole purpose in life is to find a man. When Mari's latest catch - Ray -hears LV's impersonations of famous singers, he rushes to exploit it, and the result destroys LV. Finally, however, LV regains the courage to speak and sing in her own voice. This Jim Cartwright comedy, in turn savage and sentimental, was originally presented at the National and Adwhych Theatres with Jane Horrocks, Alison Steadman and Pete Postlethwaite in the starring roles.
