Rise & Fall of Little Voice in Grasmere
The Grasmere Players perform The Rise and Fall of Little Voice at Grasmere Village Hall on Wednesday and Thursday evenings between June 8th and July 14th 2016 (nb. the Thursday June 30th performance will take place on Friday July 1st).
The play by Jim Cartwright tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, out of control mother, Mari. Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting impersonations of famous divas, including Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland and Lulu. When Mari starts dating small time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he’s her last chance for a better life. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she’s his ticket to the big time. However Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved. Please note this play contains some adult themes and language and is unsuitable for young children.
The Grasmere Players in their current formation have been in existence for 60 years. Refounded in 1949 after the Second World War, the Players are dedicated to producing quality plays for local audiences in Grasmere and the Lake District.
