This Olivier award-winning comedy draws its sharp edge humour from its tragic characters whilst delivering a sparkling night of music from the divas we all know and love. “The Little Voice (LV)” is a shy, reclusive young lady dominated by her larger than life, out of control, alcoholic mother Mari. In this heart-warming tale, LV desperately missing her dead father, spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting her impersonations of famous divas such as Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield. Her remarkable talent remains a secret until she is overheard by a local talent scout Ray Say, one of her mother’s boyfriends. When Ray hears LV sing, he thinks she's his road to riches and he sets about creating the show of the century with LV as his star. Ray is convinced that this is his chance for fame and fortune, but what does LV want? This play contains strong language.
