Winner of the Laurence Olivier award for Best New Comedy, and probably best known for the film adaptation starring Jane Horrocks and Brenda Blethyn set right here in Scarborough.

LV spends her days trying to avoid her domineering mother, Mari. She occupies herself listening to her late father’s records - Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland - all the time hiding an incredible gift for pitch-perfect impressions of them. When Mari’s latest boyfriend, talentscout Ray Say, overhears LV’s astonishing singing he wants to make her famous - and himself rich.

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is in turns brutal and tender, terrifying and exhilarating and this production will serve up the perfect cocktail of northern grit and Hollywood glitz. It’s also packed with hilarious characters and hit songs. Bold, brassy and big-hearted.

★★★★★ The Guardian
“A northern showbiz fairy tale, a backstreet Cinderella story with a built-in kick”

★★★★★ Telegraph
“A cracker, original, hilarious… Jim Cartwright is one of the mavericks of British Theatre”
