You might know the story of Little Voice from the Oscar nominated film starring Jane Horrcoks, Brenda Blethyn and Michael Caine, but seeing it live is a different experience all together, and a better one.
And on Monday 8th June, you can see the new West Yorkshire Playhouse production and pay what you like, which could pay as little as 50p, their minimum charge. If you book in person there aren’t even any booking fees.
‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice’ tells the story of a shy young girl and her domineering mother. The girl says barely a word and spends much of her time avoiding her mother’s new boyfriend’s or listening to her beloved dead dad’s record collection, which seems to consist of drag queen favourites like Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe. But when Mum’s latest beau turns out to be a washed up agent and little voice lets her talent for belting out a tune show, it’s all change as the chance for fame, wealth and redemption appears.
The cast includes two former Coronation Street regulars, Vicky Entwistle and Chris Gascoyne, with Nancy Sullivan as Little Voice.
Booking for all performances is advised but for the ‘pay what you want’ show, you’ll need to get on the blower, on the interweb or take your own little voice to the box office.
The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Fri June 5 - Sat Jul 4
