THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE
By Jim Cartwright
Directed by TONY BRIGHT
18th - 25th August 2018
Little Voice lives alone with her Mother Mari whose sole purpose in life is to find another man. Mari's imposing presence drives the shy Little Voice into utter seclusion and she spends her time in her bedroom listening to her late father's records. When small-time impresario Ray Say, Mari's latest catch, hears Little Voice's faultless impersonations of various famous singers, he recognises the gold in her voice and determines to exploit it, but the whirlwind rush for success breaks Little Voice and dashes Ray's hopes. Finally, however, Little Voice gains the courage to speak and sing in her own voice through the help of a very friendly telephone engineer called Billy.

What happens when George Schneider, an American writer, still grieving for the loss of his wife meets an actress, Jennie Malone, and marries her within two weeks? Add to this his brother, Leo, and Jenny's best friend, Faye, and you have all the ingredients for a great play, based on the real life experience of Neil Simon himself! It is whimsical, touching, and funny in equal measures.
