Written by Jim Cartwright
Directed by Keiran Whelan-Newby

“Little Voice and Mari Hoff - a daughter and a mother central to the heart of this Northern fairy-tale, but as far apart in character as can be. Little Voice leads a quiet and unassuming life, seeking companionship and joy from music’s most iconic singers, whilst Mari prefers the sound of her own voice, indulging in a life of booze, cheap thrills and seedy men. Left to her own devices, LV starts to embody the famous divas she plays on repeat, swapping the grey backstreets of Northern England for the bright lights of Hollywood and Broadway, all from the safety of her own bedroom. When Mari starts dating small-time club owner Ray Say, LV’s astonishing impersonations are thrust into the spotlight. Transformed and sensational, LV might just be Ray’s one and only chance to hit the big time, but what will the consequences be for mother and daughter?
Cartwright’s timeless and iconic tale explores the highs and the lows of small-town dreams, family rivalry and finding your own voice in a noisy world. With humour, heart and countless powerhouse ballads all performed live on stage, this life-affirming production will rouse even the weariest of souls”
