The Union Theatre present their final show before relocating: THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE!
The Olivier Award winning comedy tells the story of LV, a painfully shy girl who spends most of her time listening to her late father’s collection of old records and perfecting her astonishing impersonations of classic divas. But when her mother’s scheming boyfriend attempts to create the show of the century with Little Voice as its star – will all go according to plan? Or will LV ﬁnd her voice in another way? !!
As the ﬁnal show at the Union Theatre before it ventures to its new home, ‘The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice’ is the last production in it’s 20 year rich history of plays, operas and musicals. !!
Artistic director Sasha Regan says,“Twenty years ago when I opened the doors of the Union Theatre I never dreamed that this small arch under the railway in Southwark could achieve so much. I’m thrilled that our ﬁnal show at the original Union is Jim Cartwright’s magniﬁcent play ‘The Rise and Fall Of Little Voice’ in a new
production directed by Alastair Knights and produced in association with Aaron Rogers. I hope that friends of the Union old and new come back to celebrate and say a fond farewell to a little theatre that has truly found its own voice”. !!
Leading the cast is Charlotte Gorton (Memphis, Viva Forever!) as Mari Hoff, Ken Christiansen (Lord Of The Flies at Regents park, Inspector Calls at National Theatre/West End) as Ray Say, and Carly Thoms (Thoroughly Modern Mille, Sound Of Music) as LV. !
Other cast include: Glenn Adamson as Billy, Mandy Dassa as Sadie and! James Peake as Mr Boo/Phone man.
