The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
At the multi award winning Theatre by the Lake, probably the most beautifully located theatre in Britain, on the shores of Derwentwater lake, and just a short stroll back to Keswick town centre.
Little Voice has a hidden talent. Alone in her room with only her dead father’s record collection for company, she sings along with the greatest divas of the 20th century with a voice that’s pure gold.
Downstairs, hard-drinking mother Mari’s on the rampage – she’s after booze and a working phone line. When her latest squeeze Ray overhears LV’s secret talent, he realises she may be his ticket to hit the big time. But LV is painfully shy and she’ll need to conquer more than her stage-fright if she’s going to find her own voice in the world.
Funny, brutal, beautiful and sad, this Northern comedy is packed with sensational tunes, bold humour and a gentle heart. Named in the top 50 plays of all time and winner of an Olivier award for Best Comedy, you may have caught the film, but nothing prepares you for the full force of the original stage show.
This show contains smoke and haze effects.
Occasional strong language.
