The Rise and Fall of Little Voice


Coming in April, 2009, Valley Artists brings you the magical, emotional musical roller-coaster, of 'The Rise and Fall of Little Voice' . The stage play was written by Jim Cartwright, specifically for English impersonator Jane Horrocks (Absolutely Fabulous), and was premiered in Cottlesloe in 1992. In 1998 it was released as the movie 'Little Voice'.

Funny & sad, painfully truthful, it exposes the comedy and tragedy of a self indulgent, neglectful mother, Mari Hoff, and her shy reclusive daughter Laura, more commonly known as Little Voice. LV spends her time listening to her deceased father's record collection while Mum is busy going through her own assorted collection of men. Out of this collection comes a talent scout, Ray Say, who hears the potential of LV's voice. He endeavours to put her on stage at the local club leading to a dramatic conclusion.

The play explores the music of some of the greats Garland, Bassey, Monroe, Piaf & Billie Holiday.
This production is a wonderful technical challenge for Valley Artists.

You will thoroughly enjoy this popular musical drama.

'The Rise and Fall of Little Voice' will be directed by Janine Oliver (The Finnys, Wind in the Willows).
