The Oliver Award-winning comedy, The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice, comes to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre from Monday, November 5 to Saturday, November 10 as part of a national tour.
Written and directed by Jim Cartwright, this sparkling new production is a story of music, divas and romance and stars Beverley Callard (Coronation Street) as Mari Hoff, Ray Quinn (Brookside, Dancing On Ice, X Factor) as Billy, Joe McGann (The Upper Hand, Calendar Girls) and Duggie Brown (The Comedians).
Following in the footsteps of the brilliant Jane Horrocks, who played Little Voice in the film version, is the sensational Jess Robinson.
Shy Little Voice spends most of her time immersed in her late father’s record collection and perfecting her astonishing impersonations, much to the dismay of her fun loving, out of control mother, Mari.
Her extraordinary talent remains a secret until she is overheard by local talent scout Ray Say.
Determined to hit the big time, Ray sets about creating the show of the century with Little Voice as his star.
When the big night arrives, Ray is convinced that this is his last chance for fame and fortune. But has anyone asked Little Voice what she wants?
