|The Rise and Fall of Little Voice|
Little Voice tours to Blackpool - 19 November
Date: 8 November 2012
Following the recent Bolton Octagon adaptation of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice - another production Jim Cartwright's hit play is touring to the North West and it's being directed by the writer, himself.
It stars X Factor finalist Ray Quinn as Billy, Beverley Callard (Coronation Street) as Mari Hoff, Joe McGann (Calendar Girls, Upper Hand, The Hanging Gale), as Ray Say, and introducing Jess Robinson as Laura (LV) - the Little Voice of the title.
In this heart-warming tale shy Little Voice spends most of her time hidden away with her late father’s record collection, perfecting her astonishing impersonations. 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?
The Rise and Fall of Little Voice runs at the Blackpool Grand from 19 - 24 November.
