The Rise and Fall of Little Voice


Meet Little Voice and Mari Hoff. A mother and daughter central to the heart of this Northern fairy tale, but as far apart in character as can be. Left to her own devices, Little Voice starts to embody the famous divas she plays on repeat, from Judy Garland to Shirley Bassey and becomes an overnight sensation.

With humour, heart and countless powerhouse ballads all performed live on stage, Cartwright’s timeless and iconic tale explores the highs and the lows of small-town dreams, family rivalry and finding your voice in a noisy world.

Starring TV favourite Shobna Gulati (Coronation StreetDinnerladiesLoose Women), British soap royalty Ian Kelsey (EmmerdaleCasualty) and two-time Drama Desk award-nominee Christina Bianco, as Little Voice.

The Olivier award-winning comedy-drama from Jim Cartwright has earned international acclaim across the globe, including a Golden Globe-winning smash-hit film starring Jane Horrocks and Michael Caine.
