The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

The Lane Cove Theatre Company will present its Autumn Season of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice for a strictly limited season at the O’Kelly Theatre, Saint Ignatius College, Riverview from 10th-13th April.

Originally a play and then adapted into a movie starring Michael Caine, this is a mesmerising piece of theatre. It is the winner of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

The play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, out of control mother Mari. Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of famous divas including Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield.

When Mari starts dating small time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he's her last chance for a better life. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she's his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved. Not everyone is going to get what they want.

“Entertainment at its best. Original, hilarious and hauntingly sad. Funny, sentimental and savage by turns, bursting with compassion and life” – London Daily Mail.

“Utterly beguiling.” – London Daily Mail.

“We leave singing, our happiness fired by a glowing mixture of grit and innocence, magic, irony and truth.” – What’s On.

Written by Jim Cartwright and directed by Christine Firkin, this wondrous musical play is on its way to the North Shore. The production features Wendy Morton as Mari, Nick Bolton as Ray Say, Kevin Weir as Mr Boo, Michelle Bellamy as Sadie, Mark Reiss as The Phone Man, Luke Reeves as Billy and the utterly mesmerising Debbie Neilson as Little Voice.

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice opens at the O’Kelly Theatre, Saint Ignatius College Riverview on 10th April and runs for five performances only until Sunday 13th April. Bookings can be made by phoning 1300 306 776 or
